What a nice schematics, awesome work!
+1 for the KiCAD ;)

It will be great if you can provide also PCB data e.g. for custom tiles.

Is there a plan to release housed versions
With either headers on the pyboard or headers on the wbus?

So, have people received boards already?
I havn't gotten a shipping notice yet. I guess they have a lot of work right now.

I received my shipping notification on Tuesday. They barely have postal service here in the midwest. Maybe I'll get them sometime in April. Looking forward to trying some memory intensive experiments....
