Indeed - All of us and none of us!  :-)

Yup - Werner's list at 
looks like a good start, though as you pointed out more details still 
need agreeing with whoever ends up producing the things!

I'll let Werner speak up on that when / if there's progress, but last I 
heard sounded encouraging.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed it works out 
- it certainly sounds like we and USP have similar goals  :-)

Entertainingly, it seems the nabble permalinks I used in my last mail 
didn't work - here they are again.  [1] is the calypso (and alternative) 
discussion on the mailing list, [2] the USP discussion, and [5] the 
disclosure requirements / ODH (open design hardware) discussion.

Sorry about that folks!

For anyone that's interested, the TI legal issue is that the calypso 
documentation and OM's designs are under NDA, so iirc the only way for 
us to use that device would be if TI relaxed the terms of the NDA. A 
potential alternative to the calypso (option gtm501) has been 
identified, though we don't yet know for sure that we can use it.
