Now I am gonna start the quotes
I still can't believe people are complaining about the code not being available A WEEK after they announced it would be open sourced.
And in the OP
The code behind the mobile operating system, WebOS, is being released to open source software developers by Hewlett Packard.
They should know better not to open repos and circulate "released" news if they don't have it ready because they will get scrutiny. And as time passes it's going to get worse. Intend to open is not the same as opening the source.
Put these news together from BBC, GitHub repo, HP O/S and you get lots of people expecting what they read to be real. And if the comments posted on Github were indeed false they would remove them. I don't like mentioning open source and publishing thin air. I can give you lots of examples where "open source projects" in repositories have even reviews and recommendations without having any code published. You know what this means right?
