I’d like to have the opinion of this community regarding a project that I have started a year ago to help with the standardisation of open-source hardware (the ORSHARDS project, as the title suggests).
The aim is to create a repository structure dedicated to open hardware that would have the same functionalities as a software repository: storing/sharing projects, providing tools for developers, helping to deploy and to run hardware, keeping track of dependencies for modular items, keeping track of updates/security issues and so on.
Needless to say this project is only starting, but the theory of operation is already in place. I made a gitlab repo with the base ideas but it is private at the moment because I want to make a grant application out of this before I make it public.
If you are interested I’d be happy to give you access. I would also be glad to give access to a GOSH group if there is one of Gitlab, to make things easier.
