It looks like there's a lot of confusion as to what open-source hardware is, so we made a godawful flowchart to help make it more clear what it means.

@diodelass I like this very much, which is why I boosted it.

However, I do believe there's a distinction to be made between open and free/libre.

I think something can be 100% open source, for example for analysis, without being "free" or "libre".
