Yes my Replicant work is on behalf of Goldelico.

Those fixes are not (yet) integrated, because they touch core
frameworks/parts of Android (#564) or interfere with my current kernel
work (#559).

I try to find solutions to not touch the core parts of Android, because
we do not have enough manpower to maintain a whole Android stack like
AOSP, Linaro or CyanogenMod do. The Goldelico build is a pure
Replicant/CyanogenMod with just a GTA04 device+kernel overlay.
