| From http://www.yqcomputer.com/ :
| During Android's transition to an open-source project, some development has
| continued to happen in a private branch. We are working to move the rest of
| these changes into the open as soon as possible, and all future open-source
| work will happen in the public git repositories. All changes that have
| already been submitted to the public repositories will be merged into the
| newer code base, so nothing should be lost.
| The Android team has begun pushing these changes to the public git
| repositories, in the "cupcake" branch.
