If we add some info of firmware for hardware entries on,
then the two wikis can link to each other: hardware entries on h-node
can link to firmware entries on FSD and vice versa. :)

What do you think?

I think this is a good idea. Having the two wikis interlinked will bring
more attention to both. I am not sure a new collection is necessary (at
this time). After looking at the current Collections, it seems we need
to do a little house cleaning (and hone the purpose of collections)
before we create more. If a specific h-node hardware runs on a free
firmware, then that firmware should be vetted, added to the FSD, and
linked from h-node with a link (in the description?) to h-node from the
FSD entry. Example: <>



To H-node:

"free driver used: ath9k_htc" -

Could state this in addition: "Depends on non-Linux driver/firmware: [ ]
