Restricted builds for Linaro Android

Registered by Paul Sokolovsky

Due to commitments to our members, there're code and feature we may not yet release as Open Source, but would like to develop and test. So, we need "restricted" environment for some of Android builds.

restricted means that the existance and log of the builds are not hidden from public, but that part of the source code comes from restricted git repositories; also the publishing area will be restricted by openid.
