But why? Perhaps LaunchPad contains intellectual property owned by other companies? Maybe the FCC prevents it due to regulatory issues? Maybe they need to cleanse it of swear words? (are there any other general-purpose excuses used by companies who claim to want to release code but do not?)
Canonical, if you want to release it, then just release it! Uncommented source drops are fine. Closed-door, XGL-style "because we know what's best for you" development is a bad idea but that's OK too as long as you're honest about it. This, "we want to, believe us!" lip service just doesn't make any sense.
Besides, could additional hackers possibly make LaunchPad any MORE confusing to use? :-)
