Thanks for this.
Getting a product out from a volunteer team is a crazy process. We are trying to take a staged approach, because we know that there will be problems. This is why we are offering a very small number of pre-production boards to help create the opportunities to do much as what you have said. As to whether we have a general board-only availability, I am not sure whether that will make sense for us at this stage -- however, we will certainly be thinking about it.
