Thanks. I'm always looking for people that are testing dfu-util with
other DFU capable devices. I just have a small collection here and I
would be interested  in more informations if it works with other
devices. I started a small list in DEVICES.txt which hopefully will
grow over time. :)

I'm not going to do this myself. For Gentoo and Debian/Ubuntu we
have package mainatiners which took care about this before and I
hope they will keep doing. From the big distros that left Fedora and
OpenSuse out. Last time I checked they did not have a dfu.util
package. If someones wants to take care of this please go ahead.
