Hildreth from OpenAg here. It’s great to hear you guys are as excited as we are to get the v2.0 up and running! A few more words on the latest release…
For both young padawan and ninja #nerdfarmers alike, @tim swears the best way to behold the v2.0 in all its alpha glory is to open up the v2.0 CAD 3D model/files and the v2.0 (alpha) BOM together. Yes! The v2.0 BOM is in our very-updated OpenAg Wiki.
Like @Caleb mentioned, the alpha release is a snapshot of the updated v2.0 PFC features, and we’re working hard to stabilize the hardware and software so you can expect fewer changes with v2.0 PFC beta. We’re putting together a build video for the v2.0 PFC beta and we’ll have that up before the end of this year.
The v2.0 absolutely needs a complete build manual. This is where #nerdfarmers come in! OpenAg needs your suggestions, questions, critiques, and expertise in the v2.0 documentation. If you’re keen to share as you build, want to help others get started, or have questions, feel free to create an account and stub out pages on the OpenAg Wiki: http://wiki.openag.media.mit.edu/contributing
Like all wikis, ours is a living doc…some “in process”-ness is okay! Bear with us as we work out the kinks for organizing contributions. If you have wiki account signup problems, send a message to @gordonb & he’ll get you sorted (thanks gordon!).
I hope this helps - high-fives from all of us at OpenAg!
