I have made some significant edits to the document in a few sections:
"Original Design Files," "Auxiliary Design Files," and some parts of "Additional Notes on Best Practice for OSHW" at the end.

I hope that these edits are considered helpful.

I still see a lot of room for improvement remaining, if anyone else would like to help out, in the following sections:

* The intro to "Sharing Files"
* Bill of materials
* Software and Firmware -- could really be expanded a lot
* Photos
* Instructions
* Legal practices to protect sharing
* Distributing Hardware
* Additional notes
