Is CyanogenMod about to become Lineage Android Distribution?
Lineage Android Distribution could be the new name given to CyanogenMod, it has emerged. Android Police discovered a GitHub repo bearing the Lineage Android Distribution name, currently being updated with Android code associated with CyanogenMod, suggesting that this is the new home of the project.
The news follows soon after Cyanogen Inc separated ties with co-founder Steve Kondik following a post in which he discussed problems he’d encountered at the company. Kondik ended his post with some questions for the community regarding the direction CyanogenMod should go in next – suggesting he was still interested in pursuing it.
The Lineage Android Distribution page is now being populated with content on almost an hourly basis but nothing has been officially confirmed yet.
As for the name, LAD (from Lineage Android Distribution) could become the new CyanogenMod moniker, though it also may be titled “LineageOS”, which can be seen elsewhere on the page. Android Police also speculates that the project may be referred to as LAOS (Lineage Android Operating System), citing sources close to the project.
