Following September's Open Hardware Summit, we're pleased to help announce the release of version 1.0 of the Open Source Hardware Definition.
While this is a "1.0" release, Open Source Hardware is an evolving field, and future releases are expected. The real milestone here is that we now have a first benchmark for evaluating possible open source hardware licenses-- and we look forward to being part of that process.
Moving forward from here, some steps if you'd like to get involved:
- Endorse the definition, if you'd like to put your weight behind it.
- If you have feedback, please join the mailing list to talk about it. Hopefully a version 1.1 will be coming in the near future.
- Help out with the OSHW logo selection process. You can submit a new one, or look at those proposed.
- Show your support for OSHW by applying the definition to your projects
