I have just noticed on their blog:
"Restructuring of repositories
Those who are following our GitHub might have noticed that we did set some of our repositories to private. As described here in this README.md this is not about hiding our code. Everyone can request to get access to the source code by sending us an email with his GitHub account or if you do not want to share that can even get a zip file with the sources. According to the license terms you are then also free to re-share or make them public on your own if you want. Furthermore all changes to those repositories will still also be public on our Gerrit. Our main motivation for this is to gather knowledge who is using our code and to improve the communication and teamwork with other fellow developers and interested people. And it would be awesome if this leads to more developers contributing their changes and building together better things in the future.

"The repositories in omni-private are only accessible to registered users So if you want to use those please contact us by email to [email protected] with a short description what you want to use them for. Send us your github account then we can add you to the group that has read access to those repositories.
Changes to those repositories are still accessible on gerrit"
How do you comment on this? I am quite new to the ROM world, so I do not know if this is a common and normal practice... Is it? I find it quite strange...
Do you guys think this could be somehow problematic transparency and trust -wise?
I am ex-Lineage user... How would you compare official Omni and official Lineage OSes and their team from the point of privacy, security and trustworthiness? I have read some comment about bad attitude of admins on Omni Telegram group. Cold this be a bad sign?
Thank you for help and great work
