The only item that they released source for is the camera, which is the only thing they are obligated to release (statute, blah, blah, blah here). I guess if ICS will be made, it's going to have to be built outside their source, unless the korean/chinese copies are identical with open source kernals.
This post effectively sums up what most of us were trying to say about Motorola and (to a much lesser extent) VM. Moto isn't going to do anything that would allow ICS as a release, and if they won't, neither will VM since they don't have access to a dev phone.
