Then it's not a libre hardware project yet!

It is. All owners of this hardware have the schematics and the rights thereof to redistribute.

And need I remind you that outside your organization there is an
organization/user of an EOMA68 computer which haven't received the
product as a libre hardware product, because free PCB files have not
been provided?

This is not correct for multiple reasons. For one what the FSF reviewed was not the final hardware. The hardware they have reviewed was an early prototype that demonstrated we would be in compliance with RYF. The FSF does not have any units for RYF yet. Under RYF you would be correct. They would in that case get to keep the units/own them. The units they were given were on loan. We still owned them. A company can utilize free software and refuse to provide its employees with the source and still be in compliance.
