What happened to the Linux Drive project (Sorry, can't recall the official name)

Greetings everyone.
By this time I am officially confused.
Several months back I read in the Linux press that a project had been started whose charter was to create Linux Drivers where they do not currently exist and the only alternative was to use a proprietry driver. All you needed to do was contact them. They had programmers at the ready.
A short follow-up piece a few weeks later had the head of this project stating the world had not exactly beaten a path to their door. Only a hand-full of requests for the creation of a driver had been received.
We don't seem to be able to co-ordinate ourselves too well. An attempt to resolve driver problems was offered and no one came.
I have only one question - why?
