Thanks for your patience while we worked on other urgent issues here.
There're two notes I have regarding that issue:
1. I find it amusing that Google added an open source game to AOSP
codebase. What would that mean - new devices would ship with Replica
Island included? ;-). In either case, we fetch new projects from AOSP in
manual manner, so thanks for the notice, platform/external/replicaisland
is mirrored now.
2. Linaro Android tree is a proper superset of AOSP, i.e. we have
intact AOSP which lives in its standard namespace (e.g. in master
branch) and we have separate namespace for any Linaro changes - those
are branches which start with 'linaro'. So, when you do
repo init -u git://android.git.linaro.org/platform/manifest.git --mirror
you essentially mirror AOSP without our changes (because you use
default.xml from the master branch). To mirror Linaro tree, you need to
use for example "-b linaro_android_4.0.3" (the latest branch we're
working on). You may also want to check what manifest you want to
mirror, we have per-board manifests which include board-specific kernels
and support components, you can see what's available in gitweb:
