opening source code

To the SDK developers

It looks to me that the SDK evolution is too slow.
After few years of releases it is still plagued with issues
that sometimes takes forever to fix.

The current state of SDK also causes futile arguments of whether
it is broken, and where it is broken, and how to reproduce and
workaround reported defects:

viewtopic.php?f=66&t=5470
viewtopic.php?f=66&t=4701

Some issues are never addressed:
viewtopic.php?f=66&t=5128

The list if issues and examples goes on and on.

HERE IS THE PROPOSAL:
we are motivated to help you, but you need to open your source

ESP8622 is an excellent HW product.
Please, do something to stabilize the SDK or ESP8266 will die or
be overrun by competitors that are coming too close.

Hi,

So sorry for the inconvenience.

Could you provide your test code? We will help debug it.

Thanks for your interest in ESP8266!

Always the same answer...
The test codes are included on the posts, read it and you i'll find the codes.
We users/clients don't have the responsability to create test code projects. We're already giving a loot of important information and bug reports. Espressif should have unity/functional/integrated tests before each release to make sure that everything is working as expected.

- mbedTLS is no longer relevant, because I do not use secure
connection to avoid memory leaks.

- Even without the secure layer, TCP connectivity is unstable and
issues seem to hide deeper in the TCP stack.

- For example, SDK fails to initiate new TCP connection after number
of previous disconnects on WLAN level due to weak RF signal (this issue
has been reported by others too).

- all test code is in our bug reports - if you are unable to compile it, then I am
VERY surprised, because this is much easier task than compiling your SDK "Examples"
which even fail to build (the latter says enough about current state of SDK).

- open the source and we will debug your SDK ourselves

Hi there, I was wondering if the source code for OO was available anywhere? I would love to try porting it to a new platform. Thanks
