If you need a specific feature, you can sponsor it, so we may focus our efforts on that feature. Those sponsored features will also be released under the same license as (R)?ex itself, to guarantee that it will be maintained like any other feature. Please contact us for further details.

There can't be enough hardware where we can test and build (R)?ex. If you can donate any kind of hardware, please contact us.
