 we have had confirmation from them: they have absolutely no software
engineers or any technical expertise of _any_ kind: they are purely a
manufacturing factory.  everything that we sent to them they forwarded
to naijing aka http://mid-fun.com.  chitech, not knowing the
implications, even relayed the GPL violating responses.

 then we learned, after they began reading the messages that they were
relaying, that they were getting very worried, and actually made a
request for the linux kernel and other source code _themselves_... and
naijing aka http://mid-fun.com denied the request even TO THEM.

 this does not de-obligate chitech from complying with the gpl: they
are still in violation for distributing binaries without source code.
but it helps clarify that they're being fucked about just as much as
we are.
