I totally agree. Let's discard the v2 ASAP.

Yeah, as a Twizy user, I feel like we'd really benefit from a more
flexible platform.

Uh ? What kind of aproval are you looking for ? It's a homebrew /
self-implemented device, and per EU laws, you shall dispose of your
goods as you'd like unless interfering with safety regulations (or,
obviously, broader laws).

Then they might have to contribute (financially) to a certifiable
device, which AFAIK is not a goal for the OVMS project. Distribution of
an embedded developpment platform isn't regulated. They could use it for
prototyping, but would still have to go through regulatory burden on
their (eventually customized) design.

Not sure it's a good idea to publish data coming from this server.
Please consider debating a policy regarding user data on OVMS servers,
it could save us a lot of trouble. I personally am against any use or
publication of any user identifiable data, and even statistics could be
used against us by regulator's jerks, as they could imply real use
instead of pure amusement.
