Dont worry about trolls that come in and say better for AOSP. Lots of guides out there, they can make one...
Thank you for taking the time to create a ROM for this device.
Haters gonna hate...

In the future a more tactful way to handle this would be to PM the developer and ask if he has any plans to develop an AOSP rom. Annoying the developer by denigrating his work in thread is usually not a good way to get what you want.
MV you contribute a lot to this forum, so I say this with all due respect, AOSP is not at all contingent upon CM. CM is built from AOSP source, and has the heaviest development community for a non-OEM firmware....but it itself is just a flavor of the ANDROID ecosystem.
Futher, CM development is strongly tied to CAF...which is QUALCOMM-centric. Our Exynos devices do not benefit directly from CAF developments. On the plus side...google has posted on their GIT, 3.10 kernel resources that have specific defconfigs for EXYNOS architecture. This will help development of custom kernels...which can sometimes be the largest hurdle in AOSP rom developemnt.
In the coming weeks I plan on setting up a build environment and attempting to build slim for our 10.5s...now I am by no means a "developer", but like gunthermic stated above...if you wanna eat, you gotta LUNCH (bad building pun intended).
EDIT: almost forgot... Nice work OP!
