Agreed, but that's something we can fix. There's no reason why we couldn't have a community operated public development infrastructure that embedded vendors can use. Something like sourceforge/savannah might work, if they started offering public git trees, but they've been around for ages, and haven't so far persuaded many vendors to head down that route. I suspect something tailored to the needs of the embedded world might prove more enticing.
