Hi. I bought an earlier version of the core second hand, it is heading my way. I am a programmer but I have absolutely no background in electronics except building my own computers which is easy.
I am interested in the idea that the hardware itself has been characterized as open source. Does this mean that if a user wanted to construct their own core, there is sufficient documentation to describe exactly what to build, if not how to build it?
The most basic reason I can think of is to relieve what appears to be dependence on the project maintainer for the hardware, which might suppress other people from stepping up and helping with all phases of development.
This tool is unique, the project should thrive
