congratulations for reaching this milestone! ... I have to admit if
feel strange that it was Wits who made the schematics at the end...
but well... it's nice to finally have schematics.

- will these schematics be open sourced? when?
- does this new $relation$ with Wits gives us something new regarding
the CedarX libraries and access to their latest u-boot/linux sources?
- any plan to make also a good eoma68 laptop soon?

Best wishes,
Alejandro Mery
