Do you trust in chats more than in 'measurable' efforts how to support the open source community? For example do you find A64 here: https://github.com/allwinner-zh/documents

Of course not, you'll have to visit Olimex github since they're the OSHW people publishing every stuff even if they had to sign NDA: https://github.com/OLIMEX/OLINUXINO/tree...r/HARDWARE

Are you on crack? What's wrong with you?

We need Allwinner to cooperate with the open source community. TL had several meetings with them, including the CEO, and got them to commit to doing so in the first instance and now to dedicate engineering resources to it. Is this a guarantee that they will cooperate? No. However, it is a necessary first step. What is there to criticise about TL/Pine64 doing this? This commitment is further than anyone has gotten before with Allwinner.

A64 is irrelevant. Pine64 uses the A53 SoC. The entire BSP for A53, which is exactly what you were pointing to on the olinuxino github for the A64, is available for download from the pine64 wiki. No NDA required. Just some RTFW, tar and gzip. If it makes you feel better, you can put it up on github.
