I hope to be able to contribute to the effort of improving the test suite by
integrating Android support in, so I don't need to run them from an external
Makefile, and instead everything needed is included in each gnupg subproject's
build system.  How much time I'll be able to spend on that depends on a lot of
things, including our hiring, whether we get some grants, etc. I'll keep you
posted.  Another possibility is us finding funds to pay someone who is well
situated to work on integrating the Android bits.  Let us know if you know
anyone who might be interested.
