Jean-Baptiste Queru talks
about the Android 2.2 code dump
from Google. "In order to make
it easier for device manufacturers and custom system builders to use Froyo,
we've restructured our source tree to better separate closed-source modules
from open-source ones. We've made many changes to the open-source code
itself to remove unintentional dependencies on closed-source
software. We've also incorporated into the core platform all the
configuration files necessary to build the source code of Android
Open-Source Project on its own. You can now build and boot a fully
open-source system image out of the box, for the emulator, as well as for
Dream (ADP1), Sapphire (ADP2), and Passion (Nexus One).
" The post
as a whole describes something which is beginning to look more like a real
open source project.
