The wonderful thing about open source hardware and software is that you do not have to rely on a group or a specific vendor. If you disagree you fork or simply create your own repo it does not mean that you violate some ones copyright you simply reflect your changes on your repo or remove the software if that's not good enough.
If you demand things from people or expect them to act within the confines of your expectations you really do need to pay them.
Often people think that it is their calling to have vengeance on something they disagree with. It provides no benefit and all it does is cause harm.
Open Media is probably a great product. For me it didn't pass as useable for my needs so I have not considered it since I first looked at it. Not that Open Media is unworthy in someway but of all of the different file sharing and file vault software out there I did not find one that fit my particular needs. That's ok they are fine but I wrote my own that does what I want it to do.
So when I say "I don't care" understand I have no control over anything that I did not personally make so why would I care ?
The whole point of what I am doing is not for any group, manufacturer or other entity but my own. If I share my efforts it is because I desire to.
NO OTHER REASON.
My sharing what I am doing is just that sharing.
What benefit does joining some other group provide me ?
Do they provide me what I need ... NO
So looking at the forum I see the factory rep sinovoip who may or may not have a team, trying to build a team. It looks like he has his hands full. This guy is not the company sinovoip he is the forum moderator.
Why there has not been a separate distro setup or at least a separate image M3 repository for the base images I do not know. However I was able to post my cleaned out images on a free web drive and make them available, why haven't more people done the same ?
I know some of the groups have published images and I am unsure of the issues if any.
I know that I have not had the same experience others have had mainly because I do things differently than others.
I have not joined any group of developers because I do not need to and I only share what I want to.
