New Raspberry Pi to NRF24l01+ Shield

Can you publish the GPIO pin assignment for the NRF24L01, please - in particular, which pin is used for CE on a RPI 2?
I think he uses actual pin nr15 of the header. That would be GPIO22.
I use actual pin 22 on my board, which is GPIO25.
This allows me to stay within a 2x4 header format.
In his board he used a header for all 26 pins of the GPIO, so it does not matter which GPIO port he uses.
When compiling the PiSerialGateway, you will need to adapt the constant describing the pin to be used for CE, since it is now set to GPIO25 (pin 22) instead GPIO22 (pin 15) in the latest MySensors/Raspberry git.
Nope, I was wrong: he also uses GPIO25 (pin 22), so the latest version of MySensors\Raspberry should work for this board also.
(I just traced his board based on the pictures).
I actually ordered two of these last week. Cant wait to try them out - will get rid of more of my rat's nest of wires and increase the WAF!
This shield actually has a few nice extra's my board does not have (buzzer, prototyping area). I just needed a power adapter and connector (and would also prefer no wires).
Here is my setup
@MikeF Here you go:
I just got my boards. Not sure if this will work on my RPi2 though.
Update on the boards. It worked great on my RPi2 B. It did not fit on my RPi1 B due to the composite video jack preventing the shield from being seated fully. Guess I will need to de-solder that jack (dont have it hooked to video output anyway.

@ceech thanks for the board - arrived via eBay today! Looking forward to tinkering!
