New Policy On Ports And ROM Inclusions

There has been an enormous amount of interest surrounding utilizing components or modifications from our ROMs.  To this point, our policy was that any such work needed to explicitly be approved by the team.  The fact of the matter is that the policy is simply not enforceable and any time consumed working to enforce it detracts from the time we have to work on Android (which is what we really enjoy).  As such, we’ve decided to go in a different direction.

Going forward, ROM developers are welcome to utilize any portions of our ROM which are of interest.  Our only requirement is that you let us know about what you’re doing by sending an email to (devteam|at|virtuousrom.com), credit the Virtuous Team in your thread(s) and provide a link to our website.  No response on our part is required whatsoever, we’re just interested to hear about how our work is helping you.

Our plan is to continue to innovate and push the envelop of ROM development; with the goal of staying enough ahead of the curve to merit a desire to clone our work.

In one sentence: The original is always better than any copy / clone!
Let the others try to copy your ROM, but the users will stay with yours.

Im really looking forward to the next big Final, but 1.31 is absolutly fine till then.

As a developer myself I understand your frustrations with what has happened and the way that you spend many hours on something only to have it ripped apart and altered, the only thing I found annoying was when others try to claim it as their own work.

However your decision to allow the source to be modified is the correct action and yours will always be the "vanilla" and best version in my book. However you may find some others fix issues and I would suggest they are able to contact you about these for testing and possible inclusion to your future bases.

I always say an entire community testing and working on a project is better than a closed team
