Open Source Hardware certification update

The Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA) has updated their certification:

After almost a year and a half of community discussion, OSHWA unveiled the Open Source Hardware Certification Program at the 2016 Open Hardware Summit. Today, with the help of a major grant from the Sloan Foundation, we are excited to announce that we are taking major steps towards Certification 2.0. The original certification program has some fairly straightforward goals. It is designed to make it easy for creators to identify their hardware as compliant with the community definition of open source hardware, as well as make it easy for users to know that hardware that is advertised as “open source” meets their expectations. The certification process gives a creator confidence that they have done everything required to call their hardware open source. The certification logo gives users confidence that they will be able to access, build upon, and hack any hardware that they receive. We didn’t know what to expect when we launched the certification program and have been blown away by the results. There are currently 170 certified hardware projects from 18 countries on 5 continents participating in the program.[…]
