Is open sourcing primarily just altering table values? Eventually, could we have access to the calculations/relationships between them? Maybe change (or eliminate) table relationships. Just curious.

What's the timeframe involved with cracking the DME... do you have to translate from German, and/or are you actually tracing to the electrical input/output?
Open sourcing refers to transparency when it comes to the software being used to write/read from the DME.

For instance, if Terry and Shiv decide to open source their piggys, when we get the source code and we can change teh firmware to our liking. same with COBB. (think Linux vs windows)
