Default Why has it been 2 months and GPS is still broken in CM 11 nightlies?

For Pollux Windy SGP311, It has been reported in a variety of threads that the CM11 nightly builds have broken GPs since end of May. I have been a fan of Cynaogen mod, I have moved to Omnirom which has a working GPS.

I have to say, my experience of custom ROM support for this device (311) has put me off using them in future.
Depending on which custom ROM you choose, there are problems with GPS or sound stutter or HDMI or all & more

I've gone back to rooted stock Sony - it's so nice that everything just works
Phone : Sony Xperia Z2 running stock Sony kitkat 4.4.2
Tablet : Xperia Tablet Z (311, 16GB WiFi only), back to Sony (KK 4.4.2) ROM for a try!

Condidering that they broke handsfree bluetooth connection with most big car manufacturers in 2013 on a mainstream device like the nexus 4 and never fixed it i think it is save to say that they aren't keen on bugfixing once newer devices are out. I have moved on to other roms long since.
