Dan Morrill, Google's Android compatibility chief, posted a statement on the Android Building mailing list yesterday with details about source code availability. In the information that he disclosed in the message, he tangentially indicated that Google plans to publish the Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) source code after it is available on devices.

From ArsTechnica:
The kernel.org infrastructure, which hosts the upstream Linux kernel, has historically been the home of the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Morill's e-mail was primarily written to address the implications of Google's recent decision to relocate the Android source code, which is being moved to Google's own infrastructure.

As we reported last month, the kernel.org servers were compromised by an attacker. The Linux Foundation temporarily disabled all of the infrastructure in order to conduct a thorough security audit. Google similarly took the AOSP offline after the breach was detected. There is no evidence that any of the source code hosted on kernel.org was tampered with during the attack.
