You realize this type of attitude is the reason CM team doesn't post builds until they are official because people start judging the final product on betas. The only difference between official and unofficial is that one of them allows more premature previews and the other doesn't.Aside from the other obvious facts mentioned

well, to be honest the cm devs said they hadnt put any work into the hercules or skyrocket for a very long time because of other projects, so all the guys who are working on the unofficial are the guys making this happen. soooooo...........

yes cm team members are helping us now, but they are not the ones focused on the project they have other work on their plates.

cyanogen is accepting changes we make so this means its getting into the official repo.

so to the people who say that the official will be better and more stream lined, yes it will, because it will be finished. but it will be entirely built by team chopsticks probably and submitted to cyanogenmod.
If I have helped you, you like my work, want to get me a coffee or you feel like you wish to help me get my next device.

feel free to Donate it's appreciated, but not required!

Just thanks man. You're doing a job that doesn't come with a lot of rewards but there's plenty that appreciate it nonetheless.

Yes thats the point. A dev cant win. If he releases stuff early because everyone wants things now then people will get the impression that one only makes buggy software and if you only do official releases than you end up with release schedules comparable to those of large companies like Samsung and people complain development is going along slowly.

In simplest terms if team A released
5 betas then a release candidate which was accepted as official CM then people
would still complain team A makes buggy software while CM team will always make it perfect even though in this example there is no difference in the source code.

No matter what-- progress is progress. So many of us are looking forward to excellent, stable, quality CM9, so any news that signals moving forward is great news. Thank you to the devs for all of their hard work that they don't get thanked for nearly enough.
