Is Codebug open source ? ... will it be???

I would very much like to look at the schematic, and also try and noodle out how the HID USB MASS storage "bootloader" works. I really like the PIC18F25k50 chip, and have a lot of experience with it, and would like to share what I know about the part. I've not seen Microchip publish this type of facility, although it is common in ARM, m-Bed for example works this way.

Thanks to anyone who has some information.

Greg Fenton asked similar on the kickstarter comments here's the reply:

I cannot find any hardware schematics or source code on the internet.

We're currently thinking github will be best option so everyone benefits from changes. We also have to be careful with the software as we rely on propriety libs at the moment. Our plan is to re-write these. ... g/comments

The proprietary libraries may be USB support from Microchip, there are several open source substitutes available, but certainly a non-trivial problem to clean room. Thanks for the consideration of your reply
