PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless On the day CyanogenMod moves CM10 to stable, their domain is hijacked by a community 'member'. "We don't like how this played out, and we are deeply hurt. Likewise, we are deeply saddened at the confusion this may have caused the community. We will continue to be open about the what, when, how, but unfortunately, we may never know the 'why' - though greed comes to mind. The team itself has not made a profit off of CM and that is not our goal. But to have one of our own betray the community like this is beyond our comprehension." This makes me so angry and sad. Slightly related: it's about damn time the Googles and Samsungs of this world invest some money and resources into CyanogenMod to give them a solid infrastructure to work with. It would be peanuts for them financially.

Well my tuppence on whether Google, Samsung, HTC even
....might donate a little to the CM project - be it by way of money, servers, phones or maybe a little of their own engineers time

is that as others have stated, it would serve to not Only legitimise the CM project's implementation/reimplementation but is a tacit admission that they may be, nay are, actually doing a better job than most company's own Android offerings or customizations (at least for the technophiles amongst us).

I reckon google can much more 'get away with' such a helping hand (more openly!) , than Samsung, HTC..
