You should file a stabilisation request at b.g.o. they are likely not in
testing because there's something wrong with them, they are probably in
testing because nobody has bothered bumping them to stable.
However, considering the speed that Google are releasing Android versions, I
think that the usual gentoo arch/~arch methodology is a bit of a joke in this
case. If you didn't use the ebuilds, you'd be installing the latest sdk from
google anyway, right? All the ebuild does is unpack a binary archive into
/opt, nothing magic there, no real compelling need to wait for a stable
version. And it doesn't need any ~arch deps either
I say just be done with it, keyword the damn thing and install it.
