Which open source license requires them to release the code before the product is even released?



Fair enough regarding Harmony, but what is up with ARK?

Check out this Google Search: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&channel=tro...

Pages upon pages parroting the Open Source claim, bot not a single line of code in sight.

Ma issue here is with these news outlets parroting the Open Source claims. Your stuff isn't Open Source until the sources are open.



Some strings:

Nothing out of the ordinary at first glance. The tarball has your usual compiler stuff (binutils, gold) and a standard linux sysroot with glibc.

Whatever "ARK" is, I don't see it.


It might be just a gcc fork probably?

I mean, the current compilers from Arm and AMD are literally just clang forks… why would anyone reinvent the wheel when you can just tune clang :)
