#39

I didn't expect so much concern over source and assumed you'd just be happy that you had this release available. At its core it's just rockchip's 4.4 bsp kernel, just heavily patched.
The delay is because this is a hobby, and I have a full time job, a wife and two kids, and limited free time. In the little free time I do have, I've been busy working on fixes for the next release. I assumed those would be a higher priority to everyone compared to source code.
I'm a bit of a perfectionist and want things to be working fully (to the best of my testing ability) before I publish them. I have recently finished back porting the majority of the important PCIe fixes from mainline, and added some of rockchip's new commits as well. Just this weekend Nuumio came up with an idea for delaying SDIO probing until after the PCIe link training completes and I was able to use his idea to get that working 100% of the time (you can follow much of that discussion, with a patch link, on the IRC).
I expect that there should be an updated release before the end of the week. Just one issue to work out in the boot script first. Following the release I'll drop the patched kernel source into a new repo on my GitHub Smile
I do hope this addresses any concerns.

Understood, but code quality and life's time constraints aren't valid reasons to fully disregard the GPL.

If you're going to embark on this journey already knowing you have limited time, then that is all the more reason for the source code to go up before the binaries. So we can all fix it with you.
