Right now the on-topic FAQ reads:
Please refrain from asking about the following topics:
Code-level programming questions (cocoa, LLVM, etc…) are off-topic here. We do encourage AppleScript, Automator, and UNIX shell scripting questions as well as how to use tools like Xcode for non-language specific tasks.
But today I noticed this question that is seemingly about hardware development; the asker expresses their desire to "build a device".
Our FAQ doesn't call out hardware development as being off-topic. Should it? And do we care about whether development is for distribution or just for private use as hobbyists?
