Steve McIntyre of the Debian project is working with other open source OS developers to maintain a list of broken UEFI implementations, to help OS vendors:

I’ve been talking to a number of other UEFI developers lately, and we’ve agreed to start a cross-distro resource to help here – a list of known-broken UEFI implementations so that we can share our experiences. The place for this in in the OSDev wiki at http://wiki.osdev.org/Broken_UEFI_implementations. We’re going to be adding new information here as we find it. If you’ve got a particular UEFI horror story on your own broken system, then please either add details there or let me know and I’ll try to do it for you.
