I just implement an email API that allows 3rd party applications submitting data to CompatDB.org via email.

The application need to send an email in plain text to submissions [at] compatdb [dot] org with the following (example):

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" standalone="yes"?>		    
<submission>

    <product>Product name</product>
    <vendor>Vendor</vendor>
    <category>Hardware/General</category>

    <os>Debian GNU/Linux</os>
