Hello everyone,
I just want to provide a few notices about upcoming changes in the GnuCash
for Android repository. The changes only affect anyone who has cloned the
repository. If you have not, you can ignore this mail.

1. In keeping with the naming scheme of the GnuCash repositories in the
recent git migration, the GnucashMobile repository on GitHub will be
renamed to *gnucash-android*. I think this is a more descriptive name than
the previous one.

The new repo URL will then be:

2. Although Maven support has been in the project for a while now, I am now
going all-in with Maven. This means that the ActionBarSherlock library
sources and the Robotium jars which are currently distributed with the code
will be deleted.
Dependencies will be managed solely through maven.

If you want to use Eclipse to develop, then you will need to download the
ActionBarSherlock library and import it into your workspace and reference
it properly<>in
order for Eclipse to build the project.

If you are using IntelliJ IDEA 12, then you have to do nothing extra. Just
check out the source code and import it as a maven project and IntelliJ
will do the rest for you.

If you want to test it out, there is a branch currently on Github called
you can use to test how it works for you.

I intend to merge these changes tomorrow assuming no one has any objections
until then.
