There are many different troops, etc. sponsored by many different organizations. The ideals are very good, there are always people who are exceptions to the rule. At the Cub Scout level it is more family oriented, boys and their siblings (male or female) go camping, etc. and women leaders are OK. At the Boy Scout level it is strictly for boys. At the Venture & Explorer Scout level it opens up to boys and girls.

Agree, I also though it maybe was a related group. The need to defend is there. They also were not bullying - it was a response during the normal trademark application process. I like both Boy Scouts and the "maker" community and agree there would be a high level of interest. Unfortunately the Maker Scouts was a pretty blatant infringement, even in how they were structuring things.

Android is not "Open Source", should not even pretend to be, and people should not think of it that way. It is "Open Sauce". You can take it, put your favorite flavor on it, massage it as you will, but you cannot "add" or rather "contribute" anything to Android.

There is a total NIH (not invented here) attitude by the Android team and nothing from the outside will realistically be included. It does not operate like any other real Open Source community.

Google has their controllers and determiners, and only they get to do any of the actual determination.

So once again, it is "Open Sauce"
