Google has decided to prohibit the Android SDK artifact (android.jar) in Maven Central (SDK EULA prohibits re-distribution). This project compiles android.jar from source and pulls out source and resource files to replicate android.jar in the SDK.
Incredibly useful project resulting in the android jar and other artifacts being available in Maven central.
Big thank you for doing this! It enables automated builds and its related activities. Regretfully this is needed due to the Android EULA...
