On this moment I'm talking to Mike of Cloanto and am trying to start finding the right persons to talk to and Haage and Partners. I hope this could end up in releasing all the code up to version 3.9.

After that, Hyperion would be the most logical candidate, but they still have the biggest commercial interest on this moment I guess.
Good job. Keep it rolling.

The sourcecode leak contains the full code to build AmigaOS/Workbench v40.42, and then there is some work started for a future version. The leaked sources are an image from when CBM went bankrupt (1994).
That said, SetPatch is not included, but it is probably because of its nature (being a patch intended to fix the bugs that developers made when they already had the kickstart roms sent to production in a rush, and could not change them due to release schedules and/or budget).

There is a lot of work that has been done by former CBM, Escom, Amiga Inc developers that have fixed bugs and enhanced quite some more the OS, and that it is not included and was done post bankrupcy. That code is probably only in the hands of Olaf Barthel, Thomas Richter, Heinz Wrobel and a few others.
