I've been discussing with swiftgeek, and I believe we should start to work on and publish a set of guidelines on the libreboot website, for hardware freedom guidelines, and, as much as possible, try to tell people what to do to go about improving our rights when it comes to hardware
e.g. access to boardviews, schematics, designs etc, access to lower level parts of hardware (not just interfaces) etc
The motivation behind this is to set minimum standards for exactly what information ought to be available for hardware, to enable understanding of how the hardware works and how to use/repair/modify it.
This is relevant to Libreboot, since firmware is much closer to hardware than higher level e.g. OS kernel. There are many systems supported in Libreboot, even, where hardware info is mostly unavailable.
E.g. chromebooks (rockchip/arm) have very little manuals available for the hardware.
We are not merely interested in free software, but also hardware. I use the term "free hardware", though the community often refers to it as OSHW (open source hardware)
The EFF is doing a lot in this regard, especially on "right to repair". We should promote their work heavily. In the US, there are laws that prohibit right to repair, and our freedoms are currently under attack. For many electronics nowadays, documentation is completely unavailable to the public, so we are increasingly living in a world of black boxes with little ability to have actual freedom over the devices that we own.
