wolfspraulif you don't like something in that doc, just edit22:11
kristianpaul weed a sustem to share hardware as books may be?22:11
kristianpaulsure i will i just dint understand that line22:12
wolfspraulI think these kinds of document will almost write themselves, after we have 2 prerequisites:22:14
wolfspraul1. products that are attractive to regular people (not just Linux hackers)22:15
wolfspraul2. a group of people that can independently make a living, or at least some extra income, from copyleft hardware22:15
wolfspraulonce we have those two writing a few docs to explain our rules, principles, beliefs, etc. will be a no-brainer22:15
wolfspraulwriting them now is very hard because many things are too hypothetical22:15
wolfspraulso I rather do some practical work :-)22:16
