Last question, what makes you think that it's an HP employee that opened the account on GitHub and not an impatient fan?
Popular news sites, look here:
As of today, there's still nothing in the waiting GitHub repository, but I've been told by a senior executive at HP that there will not be a long wait for the code.
There are references to that repository from trusted media. If someone indeed plays a game, he must infiltrated pretty much the news agencies and HP itself. You got to be kidding me. And commentators manipulated everything with open source this and open source that.
In your opinion when something becomes real I wonder. I don't know about the motives but one thing is for sure. You don't go around opening repositories if you don't have code to publish especially at this level. And at this point there is nothing to suggest it wasn't HP behind it.
