Miui.us vs Miuiandroid - Explained
Most of you here have probably not been a part of what happened with the split of miui.us from miuiandroid. Essentially several devs who port for various devices had a disagreement with the other leaders at miuiandroid. I have seen some logs of what happened, but I don't know everything. I can't (and won't) make a call on if everything was handled correctly, but the result was the split. Many of the devs who have done the porting for different devices have chosen the miui.us group to work with for various individual reasons. The leaders at miuiandroid did not want to only release translations for devices supported natively (by china devs). Therefore they have decided to duplicate several of the ports that the miui.us devs were already doing. That is what is happened with the D1.
Both TP4Bama and myself have helped Trey get started and do not have any problem with him personally. However, we are not going to work with miuiandroid sources because we have chosen to work with the miui.us group. If anyone wanted to port to the D1, there was ample opportunity when TP4Bama had to take a break. (That's the only reason I am working here at all). The miuiandroid port is not because there is a need for a miui port to the D1, but because they want a MIUIANDROID port for the D1. Again, if they want to do that, we have no problem with them doing that, but that is not what we want, so we are not going to work towards that goal.
The primary location for these ports for each translation is on their respective sites (miui.us and miuiandroid.com) DroidForums is obviously a neutral site and we have no problem with each port being discussed here. When discussing the different ports, you may want to be clear about which version you are using. The ports are similar and use the same miui.com base, but different options can / will be included with each one.
