packages from the Partner archive.
The Android build system is officially supported only on Ubuntu 10.04. And it will refuse to work with all but the Sun JDK (in particular: it specifically tests for OpenJDK and refuses to work with it).
So sometime in the near future, many (most?) Android developers will find themselves with hosed build machines. Unless Google (or Canonical) do something first to prevent the meltdown.
