For what it's worth, in the linux kernel there is a "MAINTAINERS" file which 
documents who's in charge of each driver, any appropriate mailing lists, source 
code repositories, etc. That way people with questions about a driver can 
communicate with the people involved with developing that driver.  The overall 
kernel maintainers make few statements about how well-supported any given driver is.

Perhaps something like that could be used as a model.
