That may help to clarify, yes. From

| Qi Hardware is copyleft hardware.
| At Qi the hardware designs are selected because they are stable
| and shipping in mass quantities

Particularly since all this is under the heading of "Copyleft
Hardware", it sounds as if Qi's approach was part of the definition.

Alright, back to gta02-core: we have ODH vs. Copyleft HW. ODH is more
explanatory while Copyleft sounds perkier. Do we vote ? :)

Cheers, Werner
