That is not completely true, but i really don't want to argue, and again why CM9 and not the rest of Trip roms. Trip is posting his kernels here for 3 months... and few guys (you are among them) start publicly to bully him through threads (always with great popularity MIUI 2.3, MIUI v4, AOSP, CM9) making a lot of arguing, hating, flaming. It does look bad, so don't be suprised for calling you jalous...... Why? Ordinary user of ANY rom don't give a sh.. about GPL , open source , they just want quality ROMs that Trip provided. If you care so much for GPL why don't you PM him , and then report to mods or Paul, but hunting through threads is BAD idea. Anyway, story is ended as far as Modaco concerns.
I got fed up asking for the Kernel code via PM, I requested it multiple times, quite nicely to start.
As for bullying him, well, you really need to look at the history behind him & me!
See just who started the pulling down and bitching!
I helped him, what thanks did I get? well, I called a Dumb F*ck, who 'can't' compile s***. Very nice of Trip.
As for HTC releasing source, Well they are in this for $$$.
Although after a LOT of pressure they released sources.
Note my argument is over kernel source only, a device tree would have been nice, but as Android is under a Apache licence (not GPL) he can freely choose to release that or not.
Also to "believe that Trip will publish it when "dust is settled down"" is a mute argument.
GPL clearly states that source is to be provided WITH
a binary release.
Anyhow, as others stated, He's gone, others are just as bad, but most
do comply when reminded.
I do think it is a shame that Trip's own mentality and god complex stands in his way.
Lets just see where Trip is when MIUI release a build for Sensation or Cyanogen push the needed changes.
I still maintain that Trip is NOT building from source as he claims too.
His installer script is using a binary format that is not included with Cyanogen, The device ID for 007 changed to a HTC Hero!! and some of the binary firmware files in 005 are from a Nexus S.
