I was thinking more about this. A couple things that would be important for me to back:
1. All designs would be available to the community for FREE.
2. If the organization decided to have some boards and such made, they would be offered to the community for cost + shipping.
3. All work done by any member on these projects would have to be FREE. For example A person converts old iff PCB layout into portable PCB format that is used today (aka Gerber).
There are already some works out there that I would bet the owner(s) would be willing to grant some rights to:
I am sure there are more out there too.
Jens could also possibly donate/sell old unsupported IP (docs/schematics/code/rights) to this organization.
How about this for a name: Open Amiga Foundation
The more I think about this, the more I like it!
