[Discuss] User Requirement Documentation Template / specific for OpenHardware

The open source hardware definition lists requirements for a license to be
considered "open source." http://www.oshwa.org/definition/

And there's more specific guidance in this list

I haven't heard of a template. I assume that's because the actual shape of
a project's requirements will vary quite a bit. Also, it seems like the
things necessary to qualify as open source are a bit different from "what
does it do" which is what's in the requirements document. If you included
"be open in these ways" in the requirements doc it would either imply that
you're acquiring a whole process or that you're going beyond "what" and
specifying "how."

It seems like that information wouldn't be in the requirements doc, but
maybe I misunderstood the question(?)
