Awesome! Thanks for the translation, we will put it up in the oshw
reference guide! It would be super awesome to get tax cuts for open source
hardware. This is certainly something we've brought up to lawmakers in the
US, but our congress is a little... uncooperative these days, we've been
told it is not the right time to ask for tax cuts in oshw. But perhaps
Ecuador could lead the charge - that would be very exciting to be able to
point to you guys!
