Well, hwreport for http://hardware4linux.org and smolts for
http://smolts.org can be made available in Mageia on client-side (re-using

See http://hardware4linux.info/distrib/44407/ :-)

I've some use-cases at
http://mageiacauldron.tuxfamily.org/TestingMageia1HCL and
http://faq.tuxfamily.org/CommunicationLibreHardware/En feel free to add your
own use-cases (those are wiki pages).
