and hopefully when BMW get around to complying to the GPL, we will see that the critical stuff is suitably protected: https://gist.github.com/duncan-bayne/fc3213d4a0eabb70bb1e

Hopefully they won't. I would rather they break the GPL that let the source code loose. There is enough hacking of cars as it is without making things worse.
This highlights that perhaps that GPL code should not be used in vehicles or critical systems?

Though BMW seem to think they don't need to release the code and I (naively?) assume the have checked this before they used it. .
