I don't believe Andre is on to much. I am not spending a terrible
amount of time this morning, so quickcheck, please help me out.
1. The SDK itself... that hasn't been released open source anyhow...
No discussion there.
2. The Linux derivative work might not have changed since posted on
the code page. Carriers are a different topic, but they can post the
source code with release of branded handsets and they are complying
with GPL but it's not of real use to anyone
3. I've downloaded the Android Eclipse plugin from the code page
however. I suppose it is considered derivative work and falls under
the Eclipse Public License. Up until m3-rc37 they've been on the ball.
m5-rc14 and m5-rc15 are not to be found, so they missed that. Big
deal, it should be easy to update the download site, no reason to get
hot about that unless the EPL enforcement police objects (now is there
such a thing). For inside-track SDK releases that needed changes to
the Eclipse plugin... all they need to do is release it to the NDA'ed
parties and they're OK, I believe.
