Has the CM team even found a maintainer for the Galaxy S6/S6e? That's how you'd know if it were in the works; find out if and who they've found to take on the porting.

It will be hard pressed to find anyone that will support that device. Many of the team walked away from Samsung over the Exynos chip and refused to buy any device that uses that chip. If someone does get it working expect things to be broken with no way to fix it.

the screenshot is fake i can guarantee that the build date was 11.4.15 that's just one day the launch date of s6 plus the build prop should be 920x it says 920 ,the resolution of screenshot is too low than 2k ,plus the most important if he has made it boot then it should be on xda he can get a looot of donations, and i dont think any dev can achieve this feat in just one day after launch without sources(sources were released much after) plus at that time recovery was also very unstable SO TOTALLY FAKE!!!
And as far as actual CM12 is concerned we will get official cm12 in 2-3 months and they all will run like butter on 3gb ram hardly 1.9 gb will be used just have patience!!

Yes I am working on the S6 but progress is slow due to the new exynos SoC. It 'boots' in the sense that the BOOT_COMPLETED Intent is being handled by the system, but the display is currently non existent.

Also don't have a device of my own; been bumming it from resources when I can but that access is soon to be gone. :/

Do you think that Note 5 existence will speed up cyanogenmod development for Exynos 7420 and Galaxy S6 aosp roms in general?

Probably not. Exynos isn't known for being open source. Maybe someone there can handle the framebuffer, but they will have their own truckload of problems. Just as we do. The Display is most likely just the tip of the iceberg.
Maybe the Note 5 will have talented devs with the device though, but it will still be a long route. Who knows, maybe it might benefit us

    So you stopped working on itß

    I stopped working on it while waiting for an S6, yes. Just need to get some free time now to begin working on development again.

    Does anybody knows if it is even possible to port cm / an aosp Rom to our s6? Due to the exynos Chip. Some people are saying that it is even not possible.

    Samsung haven't released the necessary dev kit or whatever it is that allows people to understand how to utilise the SoC. Because it is their own hardware they are trying to make it impossible for anyone else to use it, and succeeding. Until they do (probably never) it will not be possible for CM to be on these devices. This will be the last Samsung device I purchase. Far too many things that annoy me about them, they're basically just an android version of Apple.

    it can have , as its about cyanogenmod not samsung ! Its pure vanilla !

    I know it CAN have. I ask WHY have it, when you end up with 2 pairs of buttons, which somehow doesn't seem very intuitive to me.
