        This is great! I hope some of this work goes towards building a good
        free android sdk for debian. Last time I checked, the debian sdk was
        stuck on a really old android version, and the android rebuilds project
        relied on prebuilt compilers from google (hello ken thompson attack).
        
        Speaking of, how do they deal with java dependencies? Last I checked
        gradle there was simply no way to tell it to build things from source,
        instead pulling hundreds of prebuilt java binaries, with native
        libraries and all.

          Some of the bits of the Android SDK are slowly getting packaged for
          Debian: [1] Also there is this project for rebuilding the Android SDK
          from source, but I'm not sure if it is active any more: [2] [3] The
          Bootstrappable Builds folks might have something about Android/Java
          bootstrap stuff:

        The headline here seems strange. Literally two sentences about Calyx in
        the entire article. Why was the original headline not used?
        
        Edit: looks like it was changed between my read and my comment.
        Nevermind!

        Been pretty happy with my yearly membership (5g hotspot) for vanlife.
        Glad that loot is going to F-Droid.
