Bug Description

This project contains at least the following proprietary blob: libGoogleAnalytics.jar

If making Ubuntu One Files for Android be open source is a goal, the dependency should be removed.
At least a 100% Open-source branch would be nice.

If making Ubuntu One Files for Android is a goal → If making Ubuntu One Files for Android *open source* is a goal

In the future we'll make it possible to build Ubuntu One Files without Google Analytics dependency.

As an open source project it would also be nice to make the app available on f-droid market or likewise...

Could you clarify the license in the source code?

Michał Karnicki (karni) wrote :

The source code is licensed with GNU Affero GPL v3, what is denoted on the main project page on LP. I hope that answers your question. libGoogleAnalytics dependency is not open source.

Analytics is gone now.

I do not understand your comment, David.

David Black (daithib8) wrote :

Excuse me, I meant that libGoogleAnalytics.jar is no longer present in /lib so you may want to update the bug's status

Michał Karnicki (karni) wrote :

Oh I see what you meant.
$ ant setup
pulls in required dependencies, which includes libGoogleAnalytics.jar
