I find that many developers are working on porting android 2.1 or 1.6 vanila and it result in much duplicated work.
I was thinking of maybe setting up 2 git repositories one for 1.6 AOSP and 2.1 AOSP on which everyone can work on, improve and fix bugs.

We can use github for hosting or any other site. I'm interested in looking after the repositories too.
A centralized effort will always be better then a fragmented one.

If you have alot of money, then Github would be ok... But it costs $50/month for the package that is minimum for two sets of android source code...

Gitorious and Github are both free and unlimited for open source projects.

I think we should open a project on sourcefordge for android 2.2 with the first task being to get the new kernel (2.6.32) working on the tattoo.
