Android port

I believe the Android port of Emacs is now more or less feature

It can be found on the feature/android branch of the Emacs repository,
and should support all (mipsel, arm, armv7l, mips64, aarch64 and x86)
Android devices capable of running Android 2.2 or later.  You can obtain
a check out of that code like so:

  $ git clone git://git.sv.gnu.org/emacs.git -b feature/android

Please give it as much testing as you can on real hardware from many
different Android vendors.  Follow the instructions in INSTALL.android
to build and install Emacs for your specific device.  In addition,
please submit patches and report editing modes that do not work well
with the input methods of various on screen keyboards, along with other
bugs, using ``M-x report-emacs-bug RET.''

The answers to various common questions (such as ``how to access
external storage'', or ``where does Emacs put its init.el'') are in the
Android appendix of the Emacs manual in the branch.

Prebuilt binaries will be made available shortly, but please do not
expect them to contain all dependencies with which Emacs can be built.
At present, I don't recommend using binaries from f-droid.org, since
they are out of date, but I will ask the f-droid packagers to rectify
that problem.

I will post this news to comp.emacs; please post this to other forums
frequented by Emacs users as well.
