Description Jonathan Pryor 2012-11-01 13:31:49 UTC
We should add a build step that would validate the native libraries included with a project based on minmum Android API level; see also:


For example, if minSdkVersion < 14, we should ensure that if lib/armeabi-v7a/libfoo.so exists AND there's a lib/armeabi directory, THEN lib/armeab/libfoo.so ALSO exists. Likewise, it should verify that armeabi-v7a libraries precede armeabi native libraries.
