Description

In order to use Eclipse with the Replicant SDK, it requires downloading Google's ADT plugin version 16. I believe that this version of the plugin is okay for free software development since the only licenses that you must agree to at installation time are apache licenses.

However, newer versions of google's plugin require non-free license agreements. So, future versions of Replicant SDK should not recommend using ADT.

How difficult would it be to create and maintain a free alternative Replicant Developer Tools (RDT) plugin for Eclipse?

Alternatively, since Replicant development does not require Eclipse, we could stop providing Eclipse instructions on the wiki and provide a new alternative IDE guide instead. The drawback to this would be that some Android developers who are used to Eclipse might be discouraged to try Replicant.
