I suggest putting it top most so it is more exposed to the environment. I used these longer non-stacking pins on my boards: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10158
The status LEDs should be labeled “Blinding Blue” and “Is It On? Green” since the mcd ratings are not matched. =P Or is that so the light sensor can measure the dark? I feel the ambient light sensor circuit needs some work… Mine reads 0.00 right now sitting above my monitor in very softly lit room. I’ll probably grab a few to experiment with an op-amp.
I wish I looked at the schematic closer before purchasing; the Wind pin-out is not compatible with the Davis anemometer I already had lying around.

…has this been tested with a BGA? Cause that would be really neat!

Its an Arduino Pro Mini platform, not an UNO. Arduino Pro should be in the boards list.

The SPI library calls on ‘pins_arduino.h.’ This file exists for every board, this is where the MCP2515_lib library defines those pins. However, you will need to change the ‘#define SPICS’ line from 10 to 53 in the ‘mcp_can_dfs.h’ file of the MCP2515_lib library to support the chip_select.

Yay changes >> Use the library here: https://github.com/coryjfowler/MCP2515_lib
I have a revision to this shield, who could I get into contact with about getting it put into production?
That is incorrect, the library is the determination of what the chip can do. Check out my update to the library here: https://github.com/coryjfowler/MCP2515_Library
Look at my comment below.
For what its worth, I found the library here https://github.com/reeedstudio/CAN_BUS_Shield works the best out-of-the-box with a minor bug with receiving extended IDs. I fixed those along with some baudrate constants and the interrupt handing in the receive example which is located here: https://github.com/coryjfowler/MCP2515_Library
I would really like to see an updated version of the MCP2515 shield that has the CAN pinout. Continuing on with this false DE9 pinout is a bad idea. Additionally, removing the extras would be nice. I work in R&D where our product uses CAN (J1939) and this is the most bizzare CAN pinout I’ve seen on a DE9 and the reason for it, to support a pre-manufacture cable, is pretty silly. I could see doing such a thing for the first few revisions but it should be revised. I’ve not purchased ANY of the shields having this pinout to avoid having a non-standard DE9. I built my own shield mostly because I wanted galvanic isolation of the transceiver, but also because of the odd pin-out of assembled boards.
Supporting the “standard” pinout and selling an OBDII cable with a more appropriate pinout would be so much more preferred. I would also like to see the board minus the extra, application specific additions. (eg. Joystick & SD card slot)
No public wish lists :(
