Android SDK Tools in Debian

Description of the project: The Android platform is free software, including the tools used for developing apps for Android. Debian-derivatives are already a preferred platform for Android developers, and many Android SDK tools are included in Debian as part of the Android Tools and Java teams. This project is about working towards the goal of having the entire Android toolchain and SDK in Debian so that Android apps can be developed using only free software from easy-to-use packages. In combination with Replicant, this will make the most popular operating system in the world, Android, into a 100% Free Software platform.

There are many chunks of work to be done:

Since this project is a large one, multiple mentors and students could work on it simultaneously. You can find relevant documentation in READMEs in each git repo and source package. There is also this wiki section: https://wiki.debian.org/AndroidTools
