"... 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 (http://prestodb.io/), 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.
