I had a plan to make it so that the compatibility table could be populated simply by adding or removing "categories" to the wiki page for that skin. I was about halfway through that when I decided to wait on updates to the MediaWiki software. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem like it will happen for maybe another year, so that means I have to make the best of what I have.
I'll try to come up with something that is easier to update than what we have now. Not that it's "bad", but it's yet another area of the wiki that should be easier than it currently is.
So the question now is, what features do we want to see on the list, to compare? What do users look for to see if it has skin support/options/etc? What's "cool" with the "young peoples"?
Full disclosure: I work for WeTek. However, this is my personal account, and my words and opinion are my own.
HOW-TO: You can make easy links to the Kodi Wiki Manual using double brackets around common Kodi words: [[debug log]] = debug log (wiki), [[Video library]] = Video library (wiki), [[SMB]] = SMB (wiki) , etc

That sounds like a really good idea, and it's certainly about time to look at that wiki page
Some of the current categories still applies, others need to be updated and yet other need to be added.
What still works for me is:
If we include certain add-ons, we should also make room for other. So maybe we should discuss which - if any at all (script.extendedinfo, script.globalsearch, script.skin.helper.service, script.toolbox etc etc).
Most skins use script.extendedinfo instead of the old metadata actors script.
CinemaVision seems more appropiate than Cinema Experience, although I have left support for both.
TV Show Logos should be replaced by "clear logos", to reflect Clear Art and CDArt. Maybe more artwork should be added, like extra thumbs etc.
ADSP support should also be on the list, and maybe also Radio RDS Info.
We should also think of adding which skins support image resource add-ons, and maybe ronie's script.
And maybe also home screen widgets...
That's my random thoughts. I probably have overlooked certain details, which will be added later
