The Android port was originally developed by sapier, but he is no longer active due to lack of time.
We are very understaffed and existing devs cannot spare time for Android, and are not particularly interested in it.
Some of us feel Android support should be dropped if we can't find a dedicated dev.
An ideal dev/contributor
- C++ is required
- A physical Android device is required
- Actual Android dev experience isn't necessary, but is good
- You will need to be able to use Git and work with the official repos at Github, be able to fork and submit pull requests. This can be learnt, however.
You need a dedicated IRC client to chat in that channel.
