Allwinner: "We Are Taking Initiative Actions Internally"
An Allwinner employee reached out to Phoronix to try to improve the situation, but sadly it leaves more questions than answers. Eva Wu, a member of Allwinner's marketing department, has interacted with other members of the Linux/open-source community in the past and then reached out to me to say they're taking steps internally on the matter...
Thanks for accepting my connecting invitation.Sadly though, this isn't a different tune than what Allwinner employees have been saying for months on linux-sunxi and elsewhere. They've been saying they're taking steps to correct the issues, but in the end, they still have yet to be realized and the licensing issues remain -- it's been going on for months.
This is Eva from Allwinner marketing department. We are quite aware of the complaints in open source community, and we are taking initiative actions internally. I will update you once we are ready. Thanks for your patience.
Will update if I end up hearing anything more concrete out of Allwinner going forward.
