It's Official, CyanogenMod Will Return As LineageOS
Just a few hours back, Cyanogen had officially announced that it will be hammering the final nail in CyanogenMod's coffin on December 31, 2016. Although the announcement was by no means a surprise, we were definitely saddened to see the culmination of the most popular project the Android development community has ever undertaken. At the same time there were doubts that CyanogenMod might be resurrected as LineageOS. The team of developers which was previously behind CyanogenMod has now confirmed that they will be officially returning to the centre stage of the custom ROM world under the new brand name of LineageOS. As we had even mentioned earlier today, the word 'lineage' means descent from an ancestor. As a name, LineageOS certainly does speak a lot of it's origins and past.
If one will take a look over at the Git of LineageOS and then at that of CyanogenMod's, one would be able to make out that both the Git repositories are in a hundred percent sync with each other. In simple terms, the LineageOS team has imported the essential contents of their previous work from over at CyanogenMod. They will now start on improving and bringing up LineageOS to the world of Android enthusiasts.
Cyanogen will also be shortly dismantling the Gerrit and the Jenkins servers which were earlier required for sending over new code to CyanogenMod's Git. Following this, we can certainly expect that a new Gerrit server will be made available for LineageOS. This should be followed up by the coming up of a Jenkins server which will be responsible for automatically building ROMs out of the code which is present at LineageOS's repositories.
Adios CyanogenMod, hello LineageOS!
