Hi Eshan,

I think this is a great point, and we were on the fence about it as well.

Basically, we broke it down as developers being just one person, or a small group, and manufacturers being large organizations. But you’re absolutely right, and I think we might just remove the Developer tab and keep that information in the Manufacturer one.

Does that make sense to you?
