the Linux Foundation and hardware manufacturers

The Linux Foundation maintains the Linux Standard Base for better software interoperability.
What would be interesting to know is whether the LF is in touch with hardware manufacturers about them opening the specs of their hardware so that Linux developers can develop proper Linux drivers for all the hardware.
It'd be worth contacting the LF and ask them about this.
It seems that they are, e.g.
we were talking about linux standards base as being software more than hardware but
coreboot is certainly hardware but maybe more lowlevel than looking for
though worth mentioning as well:
"coreboot (formerly known as LinuxBIOS) is a Free Software project aimed at replacing the proprietary BIOS (firmware) you can find in most of today's computers. It performs just a little bit of hardware initialization and then executes a so-called payload."
Oh! Very good! I never heard about it.
I'll add this in the wiki. Thanks.
