fantastic

This is great news !

Good luck to the developers involved.

Please dont over complicate this project.

Personally I would have :

Base no frills PPC motherboard, 1 GHZ, DDR3, PCI-e slots, mouse,kb.

Make base simplest possible so its dirt cheap to produce.

Then add everything extra as cards to fit in.

FPGA /68k + OCS chipset on a card

USB, ethernet ports on a card

If we have fixed specs on our cards and make drivers for them then other projects can reuse same cards and drivers for new systems.

Open source RTG drivers

The closest thing to open source GFX card could be getting data sheet for the Adreno 220 GPU, as used in qualcomm Snapdragon Arm processor.
