The Android browser team is actively submitting changes to webkit.
This change adds the bulk of the Android port to WebKit/android:


It has raised some eyebrows, in part because it does not follow the
webkit coding conventions or use an accepted copyright.

I originally added these files to provide a reference for other
changes. For instance, this patch:


allows a formerly private method to be called by Android's port.
Without the WebKit reference, it might be reverted.

Today, I resubmitted the patch for bug 23118 to replace all references
to the Apache License with a BSD license. Because these files are used
to build and ship the Android browser, changing them to conform to the
webkit coding standards will take time.

I look forward to working with all of you to make the Android browser
a first-class webkit citizen.
