multiple versions of distros is a separate issue - the first
is simple - i meant "conflicts" in the plain sense - does a
search result for "foomatic-123" present "Works with free
software? Yes"? , "No"? , or both (in conflicting per-user

alice posts data including a common hardware (eg: i915):

  model = foomatic-123
  works_with_free_software = Yes

bob's computer or distro disagrees:

  model = foomatic-123
  works_with_free_software = No

presumably, a search will result in both, and they will
contradict - furthermore, the burden of analyzing the data-set
is on each user - this suggests some interesting analysis
questions, which could be resolved programatically, if it is not

  how many other users, agree with alice and/or bob?

  is it possible to present search results as a compact table?

    eg: "Foomatic-2000"
        "Alice | Works with free software? Yes (for me on trisquel9)"
        "Bob   | Works with free software? No (for me on trisquel7)"
        "Carol | Works with free software? Yes (for me on parabola)"

  is it is possible to collate/average entries common hardware,
  into a [SIC]"user-confidence-rating"?

    eg: "Works with free software? Yes (41/42 users)"

maybe some otherwise hidden wisdom may be revealed with better
presentation; such as: all 'Yes' were also tested the same one
distro, and zero 'No' were tested on that distro - all 'No' were
from another distro
