> Is there a plan to make Android a supported platform in 3.6?

This is the list of Android related issues that will modify the standard library and core Python when fixed:

    issue 16255: subrocess.Popen needs /bin/sh but Android only has /system/bin/sh
[1] issue 26851: android compilation and link flags
    issue 22724: byte-compile fails for cross-builds
    issue 23968: rename the platform directory from plat-$(MACHDEP) to plat-$(PLATFORM_TRIPLET)
    issue 26919: android: test_cmd_line fails
    issue 26920: android: test_sys fails
    issue 26928: _bootlocale imports locale at startup on Android, causing test_site to fail
    issue 26937: android: test_tarfile fails
    issue 26934: android: test_faulthandler fails
    issue 26929: android: test_strptime fails
[2] issue 26942: android: test_ctypes crashes on armv7

All the other issues listed here in this meta-issue are changes to the test suite (mostly skipping some tests). A buildbot must also be setup for the Android emulators and maybe also for an Android device. That means installing the Android sdk and ndk and a build system on the buildbot.

[1] Issue 26851 is an enhancement.
[2] The root cause in issue 26942 is unknown yet.
