Yup, just saw the announcement on the official HTC Facebook.
Says 90days after the google source is released the M7 will have "L"

Great to see HTC throwing updates like this LAST gen phones.

Does anyone know if google is planning on releasing the L source code for the developer's preview or only the Nexus 5/7 factory images?

For what I've observed from Google I/O ,android L developer preview will be initially available only for nexus 5/7..
As this will be a test build only,I don't think Google will release factory images for other devices.. Other nexus devices n gpe might see the light some days later but not any soon

Wouldn't be surprised if someone ports the dev preview for devices other than the nexus 5/7. We'll just have to wait and see...

I don't think that would happen as porting means copying features of one device to another which are at same android version. So some features might be available but complete rom can hardly be available. Again We have different hardware config from nexus devices so hardware driver won't be available as well.
