[Update: It's official] Microsoft reportedly acquiring GitHub tomorrow

GitHub is one of the most popular sites for hosting repositories of code. Google moved most of its projects to GitHub after Google Code shut down, and countless open-source Android applications and libraries live on the site as well.

Motorola releases kernel source for Moto Z2 Force

Motorola is on a roll recently with its kernel source releases and the latest is for the Moto Z2 Force.

Well, their wait is now over since the release is official.

The source is now available to download on GitHub for the Android 7.1.1 NCX26.122-59-8 build. If you don't know what most of these words mean, you needn't worry. As a user, you won't get anything out of the code, but developers can use it to build better and more stable ROMs based off the official kernel source.
