Amiga OS 3.1 Source code leaked yesterday

Yesterday the amiga os source code and kickstart for 3.1 was leaked at #32c3 .
Who owns the rights these days?
Can anyone verify if it seems to be the real deal?
..and maybe verify if it's compilable?

Besides being illegal, I can still understand why some people
would like to toy around with this ancient code.

It's real!

Not really sure that everything is included and that it can all be compiled but it's definitely real.

Give the real link, or leave this board. Most of this twitter account is in french, and i found no link to the source code you're talking about.

ok, pull out the link, there's nothing i noticed on this twitter account, and since french is my mother tongue, i should had already found it.

Or is it?

I didn't post the link because it's still illegal - i think. Anyway against the rules here. But it's not hard to find the ftp-address on twitter for anyone curious, I guess can i be that generic about it.
It was leaked in the way that some sat up a note at the mentioned conference with an ftp-address and a text saying Amiga OS 3.1 Source code.
I can confirm the sources look genuine. However, I guess only someone that has been involved in the source code could really verify that - and I guess that IF you verify that you've been looking at the leaked source, you cant work with AROS and other stuff as easily anymore so be careful.

However, I would still be interesting to know if it's the complete source, and if it's compilable, illegal or not.
Who owns the source?

it's maybe the complete source. I got access to it, and the files are full of "Amiga Confidential" notifications in the C source files.

Only a coder can say. Contact Toni Wilen, and let him check. He will say if it's complete or not.

EDIT : there is no word about Cloanto, so the archive has been leaked by one of the original amiga engineers, there's no other possibility.

Yeah, but if he officially looks at the source, it could lead to troubles if he's implementing stuff in AROS and other stuff in the future. I think.

Toni will never implement anything breaking the law Everything in AROS is self-made.

I dont think Toni would neither, no way. However, that doesnt mean that any potential owner of the amiga os source code could think so.
Oh, well, I'm not going to speculate, that's up to any coder wanting to make a statement about the leak.

I guess that solves the issue how to historically preserve such things :-)

Best release in the last 10 years or so i'd say.

that means we could patch 3.1 source code with all the gazillion of patches released afterwards to make this a "true" 3.2 release upto modern standards?

A lot of cool thing could be done if it's complete yes, but the but best would be if any owners would just open source it - or open source after a community contribution. I guess it would be Amiga Inc. then. And I'm guessing they are not going to do any of it..:/
