While you are certainly right to ask for the source code, what do you
think that our interest in not provide it immediately would be?????

On our side there might have been some naiveness in trying to push out
the binary as soon as it was available, since it wasn't blocked by
anything but the GPL constraint, whose _spirit_ we are trying very hard
to uphold.

Ianal but frankly i doubt any of the community can contribute with
speeding up that side. Simply because it requires somebody with an NDA
with Nokia.

Certainly we would be happy to get some help =) But it's probably not

Said this, the only %100 GPL compliant option left would have been to
delay the binary.

Which is apparently what you are asking with all these whining.

possible so far. 

Take it or leave it.
