Any android packagers around here ?

Hi all,
Please look at #459219 . TL:DR basically it seems only some small
important bits are remaining for the whole of androidsdk to be in
Debian. As shared by yours truly lot of components are already here as
can be seen by doing a simple search.

$ aptitude search android

One of the most important bits (IMO) however, is not packaged is the
android emulator and from whatever I have read about it, it seems to
be something akin to qemu+modifications. If somebody would attempt to
try it, I would point them out to jakub adam who's the maintainer and
uploader  of most of the android-tools in Debian and Michael Tokarev
who's responsible for qemu. There might be a possibility that some
patches in qemu and a small binary is all it takes for android
emulator to happen. The other possibility is that both
android-emulator and qemu cannot be in the same system so the
maintainer would have to put qemu in conflicts with the
android-emulator and vice-versa.

As shared, the above two persons would be probably be the best guides
as to how to go about it. I would be pretty much be happy if we are
able to get a recentish working android-emulator for the system.
