Whiteboard

[asac, Sep 28, 2011]: some brief outline what will be done and whats the idea would be great.
[patrik-ryd, 2011/10/07] Added work items. Note: The second one depends on ST-Ericsson and might block pushing to g.l.o.
[patrik-ryd, 2011/10/11] On hold for the moment. Working on BP with higher priority.
[patrik-ryd, 2011/10/18] On hold for the moment. Working on BP with higher priority.
[patrik-ryd, 2011/10/26] On hold for the moment. Working on BP with higher priority.
[dzin, 2011/10/28] Re-target to 11.11
[patrik-ryd, 2011/11/04] Tried this again this week in between sessions at Connect. The dependencies are hopeless for the non proprietary build. This is probably not a way forward. We might have to reconsider the whole idea of binary overlay for Android.
[2011-11-22 patrik-ryd] I have not worked on this since the connect week.
[2011-11-23 patrik-ryd] This is not the way forward. Let us drop this BP.
[mansson 2011-11-25] This BP will never get done. Invalid. Taking it off the grid.

Headline:
A non-proprietary igloo build is available on android-build.

Acceptance:
A non-proprietary igloo build can be built by android-build and runs.
