Turns out Android Police blew their load early. The whole source was not pushed after all.

They old gave a partial ROM. So you only get partial source. Also the kernel source was released.

Uh right now that is the full ROM so I don't get how it's only partial. Did you expect the full release of L to be out? Makes no sense.

No i mean partial because it's just a preview build. They only have to released source code for what they have put out. The preview build is broken and has all sorts of stuff missing. Its not a full complete build.

They only released source for GPLed code changes and only those that were in the L preview build, everything else was filled in with a recent snapshot from the Main branch. I don't think that building this source branch would even allow you to recapitulate the "full" L preview build on either of the supported devices.
