The earliest PA-RISC servers have proprietary HP devices attached to
proprietary HP bus architectures. It is unlikely that documentation
on these busses and devices will ever become available, since so few
people are interested in spending any effort finding and releasing the
docs. Machines in this category are the E, F, G, H, I class (aka Nova)
and T500 series (Emerald) machines as well as some earlier, unlettered

Revolutions do not require corporate support.
