As stated in the Open Source Hardware Statement of Principles, "Open source hardware is hardware whose design is made publicly available so that anyone can study, modify, distribute, make, and sell the design or hardware based on that design". In other words, depending on some variables, we will release the mechanical and electrical design files, gerbers for circuit board layouts, bill of materials, and interface design documents.
