Samsung offers Samsung Galaxy software as open source

Samsung mobile has a special page devoted to releasing their phone software as open source. If you browse through the models available you will find that there are also versions for Samsung galaxy i7500. There are currently four files available:

This has come as a surprise to me. I have thought if Samsung has released it’s firmware as open source there would be many more people involved in further development of new version of firmware. Maybe we’d see the phone with Android 1.6 sooner and with 2.0 or 2.1 at all. Now I’m not sure I’ll see it on my phone.
