Looking at it purely from a technical point of view, releasing the source code should be doable. Of course it will require time to clean it up a bit and make it run on a generic Linux system instead of just on Lantronix modules. But I have no idea how we could allow probes with unknown firmware connect to the atlas infrastructure. At moment we can rely on the probes to faithfully report what they see. And we know exactly what software the probes are running. When probes can run arbitrary firmware, analyzing the results may become much harder.
