So remove the apps that aren't included in the source repository and we can push them in manually. What's the big deal? They're telling you to stop including those apps, not to stop developing custom builds.

The big deal is that these barebone versions will no longer sync our contacts / calendars / etc!

I can do without the gmail app, but syncing my contacts and calendars is a deal breaker for me.

Why do companies insist on alienating those who hawk their hardware and software the most? I've never seen a group of more dedicated Android enthusiasts than those who run Cyanogen and other roms. Google is basically saying "screw you" to those of us who really care about the platform over a legal issue that will in no way hurt them.

That's evil. I don't care if the law is behind them.

Yep, for some reason Google decided to nuke their own platform. Time for all of us to move on to something else. Thanks for all the great work you did. You did better than Google, pity they didn't appreciate that as much as the community did.

My intent was to make a ROM for Android devices using the bits we already have (proprietary parts) and everything else built from source.

The 1.6 Market was a leak, and most likely untraceable.

Android without the Google parts is not usable for an end-user. There is no sync functionality, no market, no IM or GTalk, no maps..

I was always under the impression that it was OK to do this since I don't modify the Google apps, and only targeted devices which were licensed for them. Apparently this is not the case.

Might as well consider this entire forum cease-and-desisted.
