    I downloaded the SDK using GIT.
    I successfully compiled the SDK for linux, didn't even try to compile it on cygwin yet, as it's not what i need ( i need just the jar's for the time being).

    I know that if you take all the sources from the open source code and put them in $(ANDROID_SDK)/platforms/android-1.5/sources you will be able to browse the source in eclipse. I thought a better way would be to jar the SDK with the source inside.

    To create the SDK jar google chose to use GNU make, got knows why not ant, but in any case i find it a bit hard to follow, where exactly they use the jar command to pack it all, and even if i'll find the spot, i need before that see where they compile to be able to copy the sources where the clases are so i can jar them all together.

    Anyone done that ? or at least got a lead ? i started out with the main Makefile but i'm not sure what the target that is run when the SDK option is tagged
