Hi all,

Yesterday, Susanne from Nager-IT, Sebastian B. and I had phone 
conversation about what could be done to document the fair trade profile 
of the OpenPhoenux hardware. Susanne announced that she contacted a 
professor of the Technical University of Munich who agreed to hold a 
seminar on fair purchasing during the summer semester on a suitable 
OpenPhoenux device. The students will do research on the bill of 
materials, document the supply chain and hopefully also provide some 
good hints on alternative vendors.

We would therefore discourage the use of the below online spreadsheet 
once the seminar has started in order to avoid interference with the 
students' work.

This is good news because we believe the project hardware is already 
quite fair and it will be good to document it. Additional research on 
fair sources for parts can help us a lot.

What do you think?

Best regards,
