If a few days ago a team of developers of the platform announced that LineageOS would be placed as the continuation of the popular ROM, we know today that machinery has already cast with the startup of the server with Gerrit.
The sudden and recent events surrounding the relationship of Steve Kondik with Cyanogen Inc ended up affecting the project of CyanogenMod. So that the project would stop ipso facto at the end is the last week. An announcement on somewhat given the popularity of the CyanogenMod ROM in the Scene Android and the intense activity in its evolution and development.

What does it mean really? As for those that used to install them ROM CyanogenMod, wants to tell that them people that have taken the initiative on LineageOS, the continuation of the popular ROM AOSP, already have taken party of the project with them tasks more basic. Them which, little by little, to promote the compilation of the kernel and source code that gives shape to the new ROM custom LineageOS.
Without a doubt, it’s big news. The speed with which the community and influential people have acted denotes that CyanogenMod does not die, but that just is transformed according to the circumstances that have surrounded this custom firmware.
