Backpack connector pinout?

I'm sure I'm just somehow really bad at looking, but...I can't seem to find a pinout for the Backpack connector anywhere?  Not the shield adapter - that needs no explanation since it's standard Arduinio plus has the bonus vias are silkscreened on - but the 2x40 pins on the back of the META itself.  Thanks!! :)

Hey, it was discussed here, but yeah I haven't documented it already, right now your have to read what's on the Developer Backpack. Sit tight !

Hrm - thanks for the reply but I'm not sure what you mean - I'm talking about the 40 pins on the back of the META - not the shield adapter itself; the shield adapter has standard Arduino pins plus silkscreened labels for the other vias, but for the raw 40-pin output, i.e. not using the adapter, how do we know what is what?  Unless you maybe meant trying to follow the traces on the backpack??  Thanks!! :)

Right now the 40 pins are not documented, I will do, until then you have to use the Developer Backpack because everything is labelled on it :)

You can simple reverse-engineer the pinout with a ohm meter though, to see which pin is connected to which on the backpack.

OK - I guess I'll give that a shot - thanks!
