This is interesting... I happened to stumble on this...

Read this linky here...

:lol:


would that ever be implemented on Modaco though, as Paul would have to give his sources for the roms he develops, and the kernel changes he has implemented.

does he do that, as I notice he also posts on XDA, his Galaxy Tab MCK and MCR comes to mind, I cant remember seeing any sources posted.

He doesn't have to post his sources but if he doesn't, then he has to provide them upon request to all third parties.

I believe he does post his soucres on a public git repo "somewhere out there"

If he distributes GPL software he should inform recipients of their GPL rights at point of distribution, and for his convenience which git repo and which commit/branch he used.

I am sure any omission is not deliberate, not that it is an excuse.

While I realize that I have only outlined a small portion of the GNU GPL, the bottom line here is that the COMPLETE and WORKING kernel source that was MODIFIED by anyone MUST be provided to the community, for any version of publicly released software.



It applies to everyone.
However horrible the hacks, however much 'magic' it adds to the aura, the source CANNOT be withheld if the compiled code is publicly released.

No exceptions.
The exact same rules apply to ZTE and freelance dev's.

Right I've tidied up this thread
I've deleted comments that were offensive to some and edited out comments/quotes from some other posts
Apologies to those that may think I just edited out quotes from their post, I did it to every comment that was relative.

If there is any derogatory comments made by anyone about another poster then action will be taken.

We won't all see eye to eye with each other 100% of the time and we all will have different ideas but

PLEASE keep the forum friendly and let's try and get on with each other.

now can we please keep it on topic :lol:

i will also make a suggestion for those who feel that not everything is being put into a shared kernel: why not help do this? you don't need to be a developer to ask for the patches from others and then commit them yourself to a git repository.

From the thread on Seb's new DX rom ...

Isn't the Google Account activation problem something that Paul fixed in an early alpha of his 2.2? Was it something in the framework?

Edit: the only mention by Paul that I could find (anyone know what the fix was?)



Anyone ???
