Update in case anyone is interested on
I was applying for a job at this company when I learned about this. They claimed the issue was fixed but request for source to specific binaries went unmet despite efforts made to create an appearance of compliance. Hopefully this is useful to someone searching for updates.submitted by lonjerpc

Or.. technically break something IN User Space.
Someone recently posted about Linus' rant at a Kernel Maintainer for introducing a patch that would really break things (as well as being bad code).
It made me wonder if there have been times when the existing code had been determined to be bad and the fix would ultimately break other existing programs, but still had to be done.
Look at this: https://archive.is/G1f3p Then look at the live link: https://www.crowdsupply.com/purism/librem-13/backers
There are only 4 extra people on the live version, at the time of writing. They are, according to those pages: Caroline T, Lawrence D, Morgan H and Todd W
3 of them pledged after the 90K surge. The first one before that is Todd Weaver, the CEO of Purism.
Surely, this violates the principles of a crowd funding campaign? The Purism CEO is cheating by pledging so much to his own campaign, surely?
Surely, this is unfair to other crowd funding campaigns?submitted by gulguls
