According to Mark Radcliffe, who happens to be the Open
Source Initiative's lawyer, Android development is pretty risky,
compared to other open source projects. But a little digging
reveals the likely source of such statements: Black Duck
"I would suggest that the only thing "wrong" with Android is
that it's been wildly popular as a mobile development platform, and
Black Duck is trying to get in on the action. There's nothing wrong
with compliance and compliance monitoring tools, but why do market
them at the expense of a successful software project?"
