    I noticed that in your guide you are actually deleting the repos in ~/android/ and replacing them with other repos. You can do this correctly by editing ~/android/.repo/manifests/default.xml.

    makes perfect sense when pointed out to me, sounds like they'd resync that way and grab the latest source from their various origins as well.

    that's awesome advice.

    To clarify, when you do:
    repo init -u git@github.com:koush/android.git

    you are cloning that repo into .repo/manifests.

    You should fork the repo, make the changes, and push the changes to your own version of the manifest.

    That way when other developers repo init on your manifest, they get exactly what is on your system, without having to go through setup headaches themselves.

    Ya i spent some time this weekend playing around with forks and committing changes, then pushing them to git.

    Merging seems a nightmare, but all your tips today should resolve most of it.

    Ok, one question though, only problem I see is that it would download what I told it to be it cyanogens source, my source or joe schmoes source, it wouldn't leave them the freedom to choose what branch or tag that they wanted. Is there a way around this?
