The μg Project aims to provide a free, fully compatible replacement of the often used proprietary GAPPS package by Google.

Very little information is available at this point, but I've always wondered why nobody ever tried to create open source replacements for the various Google Apps - most notably Google Play Services. This is clearly in its very early stages, but it'd be fantastic if we could one day have a drop-in replacement for Play Services, ensuring you could have a truly Google-free Android device while still being able to run applications that use the Play Services APIs.

Tizen and Sailfish are just as open source as Android.

Never mind that they share a legacy, Nokia's Maemo and Intel's Moblin. Sailfish actually builds on a fork of those two, Mer.
