Is there any life in the TF4060 card for the 4000?

That's cool.I appreciate the update. I was holding off on an A4000 accelerator until I knew more about this but now I can plan things.
I would like to take this chance to thank you for coming up with a plan for the distribution of the 1260/360's. I appreciate the work you have put into your projects so far, which in turn have given me many happy hours behind the Amiga. Thank you.

I probably will one day publish but dont ask when.

I had a very similar discussion on a Polish Atari scene... it was about another guy. What he did, was only sharing not his own Gerbers on PCBWay+ Shared Projects. Yet all the projects were available on their authors' sites for free. I actually didn't see anything wrong, he didn't claim the authorship, he was just sharing it, and getting some provision from PCBWay, what made the original authors angry.

You have to carefully choose the license, because if you choose one that allows a derivative works, you basically agree to someone re-release your project, without your logo.

P.S.
There still is a reseller who gathers orders, buys your TF cards in UK and sends them to Poland, yet for most Polish people, your products are beyond financial range, so it is not a huge market. I think Zaxon has the most affordable prices for retro-extensions, here in Poland.

The TF536 wasn’t released under an open source license. TF534 was, but not the 536.

@tzok it was just some asshat reverse engineered an almost free board just to spite me. The project was not licensed out anywhere.

Now Polish people will need to buy from Jens or CSLabs.
