Open hardware/software

Post by twgray » Thu May 17, 2018 10:38 pm

If this is an open hardware/software project, where are the schematic, pcb, and mechanical design files located?

Hi,

It is not fully open hardware. The schematics are available under each product in the wiki though. Other then that it is all located at github.

That being the case then you should clearly state that on your website instead of advertising it to be an "open" project. Currently, your site is misleading and a disservice to the truly open source community.

That is why we write "open" and not "open source". If you have any better word for being open source with everything except HW design files please share. A lot of companies claim they are open source but they do not reveal the silicon design of the used chips... It is not a clear line of what is considered open source even.
