We do not have to use the Google Android SDK to make Replicant. As the
source code we use if free software, there is no issue at all with that.
We evaluated the Google Android SDK license issue and it turns out it
doesn't apply to any component since every single one of them
distributed in the SDK package is free software (but the things you
might install on top like the Google apps are obviously concerned by
this license).

Moreover, we have produced our own free software SDK for Ice Cream
