Hardware documentation?

What sort of documentation will be available for the hardware?
Will circuit board schematics be open?
Will chipset documentation be provided?
I read elsewhere that only the 5Gz chips require binary blobs. What would it take to open that software as well? Have you talked with the chipset manufacturer about opening up their documentation, or how much it would cost to do? Perhaps you could get a grant to cover additional fees to make that happen (I know of at least one way, if you are interested).

There’s a good talk Felix Fietkau (one of the OpenWrt developers) gave at 32c3 about that topic: Wireless Drivers: Freedom considered harmful? - media.ccc.de

tldr; (or tldw): won’t happen


Do you know when hardware documentation will be available?
