What is open source hardware?

NO RATINGS
It is really interesting that Raspberry Pi is repeatedly lumped into the category of open hardware. Last I checked, the schematics are only available in PDF, you can't buy the processors through distributors and it even requires a binary blob just to boot it. I'd hope the definition of open hardware for most people would be a bit more strict.
