Thanks for the response... and the links. So, if I understand what I just read correctly, ROBIN is open-source firmware that can be installed/flashed onto hardware to enable it to be Open-Mesh. "Open-Mesh" itself is a group/movement/"certification" that encompasses the ideals of "WiFi deployment models that are flexible and affordable enough to work in low-income and developing areas of the world, yet powerful and reliable enough to thrive in commercial applications
" and that are owned by their installers/creators, low-cost and easy-to-install, etc.
Makes sense now. Thanks!
