    Should we accept software targeted for Android in GNU Savannah?.

Can they run usefully on the GNU system?  If not, they should not be
in Savannah.

I don't know the answer to that question.  Andriod's API is quite
different from the GNU system, but there might be an emulation layer
allowing these programs to run on GNU.  If so, MAYBE the answer is
yes, but not necessarily.  They might not work usefully on GNU.

If they could run usefully on GNU if GNU is running on a phone or
tablet, that makes them ok, even if they would not be useful on a PC.
