Question [Q] Why havent we seen any source built ROMs thus far?

Hi All,

Seeing as the source code for the M8 sense and GPe's various open source components has been released for over a month now, why havent we seen any source built ROMs yet? Things like a Paranoid port or a CM11 port would be welcome on our devices (i know not all of you want it but some of you certainly do). I ask because i am considering building something from source for the M8 and modifying various aspects in order to solve what i perceive as the problems with Android on our device.

Kind of half expected a Tizen or Ubuntu Touch port in the pipes at this point also. But its probably early days for that.

Cm is being worked on for the m8. Most of those roms are based on or use components of cm so I imagine once cm puts a working rom up many more will follow.
