Something interesting happened today which would be enticing to Android developers as they storm the internet today.
Google announced that it has made the source code for Android 4.0, “Ice Cream Sandwich” (ICS) available to the public, fulfilling the promise it made to the community at large about the openness of Android.
The code is available via the git version control system, though Google’s code review functionality is still unavailable.
Today’s source code release makes good on a promise made by Android’s development team that ICS’ source code, unlike the 3.0 version of Android, Honeycomb, would be released under the conditions of the Apache Software License (ASLv2).
More details are expected in few days.
