    Note that the majority of the patches are contributed by various homebrew developers who are not part of WebOS Internals. Those folks should be thanked too.

    We created and maintain the architecture and infrastructure which allows the many patches from those developers to magically appear in the Preware feeds.

    Most people on here are very appreciative of Rod & all the patch writers efforts, but there will always be a minority who aren't.
    Agreed. While one might could use the noob defense, I don't think it applies here. Whoever has an ATT Pre3 is in the know, in the loop, LOVES webOS or a combination of all three. Therefore, they should understand how/where the patches come from.

    Rod;

    I don't have my ATT Pre 3 yet (coming this Friday), and I want to thank you for being so proactive in getting those patches ready for it.

    You, and all the people that provide homebrew, are truly invaluable to this community.

    I could never thank you all enough, but, when donation time comes around, I try to dig deep, as well!

    And thanks for the AUPT that allows us to just install the OTA without worrying about removing patches first.

    How long do you think it took the many patch authors to write, test, and submit each of those 111 patches?

    How long do you think it took myself and the other WebOS Internals developers to review and process each of those patches so that they could be safely included in Preware for you to download?

    How much time do you think was spent setting up the infrastructure for each new patch feed for a new webOS version?

    How much time do you think was spent porting the webOS 2.2.0 patches to webOS 2.2.3?

    How much time do you think our WebOS Internals system administrators have spent setting up, maintaining, upgrading, fixing and keeping online the servers which distribute the patches feeds to you?

    I simply cannot believe the sense of entitlement and ignorance shown by some people in this thread as to how much time and effort is expended by a group of volunteers who ask for nothing but donations to cover hosting and development hardware expenses.

    Though I didn't use Preware and patches on my phone, but the help and knowledge from here is invaluable. Thanks, Rod.

    I'm very sorry if my original post came across as I was expecting the patches to be ready for 2.2.3 right away. That was not my intention at all. I was simply posting so that people would know if they updated that the patches section would be missing in preware, and also wondering if I had done something wrong to make it disappear. I had an android phone for over a year and developed roms and different things so I know it takes a lot of time and that people do it in their free time. I am new to webOS and love it , and I am still figuring out how preware and everything works. Again I am very sorry that it was taken that way as I was just trying to find out if there was an easy way to get it to show up or if i had broken something, or if someone else had the same problem and had an easy fix. I appreciate everything the homebrew community has done. Thank you so much Rod for everything.

    Homebrew and Preware, patches, etc. are what makes this OS worthwhile. Thanks to Rod, Jason,........... who have invested their valuable time and extensive skills in the effort.
