No they do not have all the information needed. What they know is that some
other distribution ships it and that it works in a device using a custom
kernel. How does it work on a normal drive, how does it not work, how are
the tools functioning with the toolset, what extra patchsets need to be
found and gotten to make sure what is in the kernel actually works as well
as it does in say the Nexus 9. Those are all tasks which need someone to
work on before it can get included. A bunch of links do not actually show
that it works or what is needed. They just have a bunch of soundbites. What
it is going to take is someone to recompile the kernel, run the tests, and
post the results.. which in a volunteer group means the people who want it
need to do the work.
What I am going to ask you is the following. If you are interested in this,
are you interested enough to do the groundwork and be involved? If not then
don't be incredulous that others have things they are more interested in
that they are doing the groundwork for.
