It is.

Between OnePlus' relation with Oppo, the documented specifications, etc. - Pretty much every difference in the defconfigs/source for the two devices corresponds to the few documented differences in specs between the two devices.

The OnePlus One is a Find 7a with the following tweaks:
1) Nonremovable battery (kernel change: battery authentication disabled)
2) A PN65T instead of PN544 (kernel change: PN65 support in the NFC driver. The PN65 is pointless now that Google has sunsetted hardware SE support)
3) RGB LED instead of the blue-only Skyline (kernel change: different LED driver)
4) Left/right "mirror" reversal. (power button on right of OnePlus, left for F7a, etc.) Kernel change: none
5) MSM8974AC instead of MSM8974AB (kernel change: none, handled automatically at runtime)
*so much sig updating needed*

An excellent post on "noobs vs. developers"

A few opinions on kernel development "good practices"

Note: I have chosen not to use XDA's "friends" feature - I will reject all incoming "friend" requests.

Addel (product manager for oppo) just confirmed that the same 2.0 beta download can be installed on both 7 and 7a phones. It would seem that roms that don't include the baseband can be installed across the platform.

I saw that and stand corrected. You gotta cut me a little slack, coming from a Samsung background where every single variant, along with basebands, cause huge issues. Glad to see it done simple from Oppo.

could also be the software baseband compatible with both versions of the hardware modem

(nexus 5 US and int'l phones use the same software modem, though supporting different LTE bands)

So after things get rolling: Find7, Find7a, and OPO owners should be able to flash roms for all devices, followed up by the correct kernel?

Yes. That's pretty much the expected outcome.

If we can't do a unified kernel, we'll be doing separate complete builds for both. But you could expect in that case we'll have something similar to the Samsung Galaxy S2 family, where the I9100, I777, and N7000 all inherit a "common" device tree that contains 95%+ of the stuff for each device.
