Froggy, I have discussed the can specific stuff with mags and I think something will get released, it is just a matter of timing. I've learned that open hardware is tricky and have shared my experience with him. But in a nutshell:

When you do *everything* out in the open, other people move in on the hardware side and while you are busting your butt making things work, they focus on the only money making angle of it. And the project bleeds as the first in with the hardware makes off with the most mula and the project champions are left supporting who knows what just so the project doesn't get a bad name.

On the other hand, this has been done under an "open" premis, so I'm pretty sure mags will release something for the diy crowd but he wants to be ready to go with a hardware offering first.

Keep me honest here mags
