Hmm, i thought of something simpler.. For example, each driver source
file could have a special section that contains the necessary infos for
the card matrix. Then a script to get the info from the source files and
puts it together to a html page would be enough.. This is only one
example, of course.. An sql database is probably overkill. We have
really static data here [after it's once generated]. Updates could then
be done like once a week or even daily which comes down to just running
a script that grabs the source from cvs and does its thing..
I don't know how easy this would be to create the rest of the docs but
some parts of it are already automated, like the api doc creation,
