That's why I've avoided running a third-party ROM on my phone, actually...
Although, maybe webOS Internals could keep up a good "vanilla webOS" fork, and target a narrow range of devices?
With the kind of government you ask for, it essentially isn't open source.
One of the first working custom ROMs available for the Sony Ericsson X10 mini was made by a 16 year old. He was something of a cunt, and eventually abandoned it, but his work wasn't bad at all. And even if a ROM is abandoned, it's not like switching to another one is much different from upgrading. The problem is if you get highly developed forks under closed licenses, with no source available.
Well, to clue you all in. HP doesn't want a gazillion forks either. They want a model that's closer to RedHat, where the code is open and people can contribute, but there is one authoritative product which will be WebOS.
This already happens with Remastersys and Ubuntu
They even had their web history in Gosalia!

XDA developer bytecode is only 13. And he appears to be working on 3 different ROMs at the moment. He is getting help from several of the developers that have produced the most popular and best tested ROMs for the LG Optimus phones.
I'm not running any of his ROMs though. At least not yet. (o;)
