"... but this recent open handed release of code is a hopeful sign."

Because Facebook hasn't be making open source releases continuously over the last 10 years. And their unique hardware designs aren't open source either. And Presto (, the tool used for the querying data from their "monstrous privacy invasion" isn't open source either. So this is a complete turn around for Facebook.
