I’m hoping to get an understanding of the open source approach in general here. On Github I see various projects as one might expect, for both hardware and software. I see recent activity on software, but the hardware (frame, etc) seems stale and outdated. I also see no license files.
Two questions this raised was:
- Isn’t the hardware also open? If so, why out of date? Are updates not committed realtime?
- What is the licensing? GPL? MIT? BSD? TAPR? CERN? Other?
I’m hoping to understand the limitations, if any, and expectations of the openess of the project. Also curious how I would be able to contribute, for example, help with some CAD tweaks. Or, is that a non-goal? (which if so, the “open” concept is even more confusing here).
Any insight on this would be great, thanks!
