     386=== Why is my drive still missing in the drive database? ===
     387
     388Unfortunately we lack helping hands in the maintenance of the drivedb.
     389Therefore it may take a long time until somebody has time to analyse and investigate upon
     390user contributions for missing devices and finally add an entry to the drive database..
     391When you send us patches for the missing entry in drivedb.h additional to the smartctl report
     392and/or also links to vendor docs about the meaning of SMART attributes in this very case,
     393the chances get better that the entry will be added more quickly ;-)
     394
     395And if you have more time to spend on smartmontools drivedb take a look at this [/wiki/vacancies_database job offer] ;-)
