Subject Re: Proposal: Change Android Project Directory Structure to Android Studio style
Date Tue, 17 May 2016 21:01:59 GMT
I think the proposal is great. Our gradle is pretty big, and it does make sense to just do
the defaults.  
+1 (personally speaking) to this – will save soo much of my time as I depend on this for
my react-native-cordova-plugin adapter. Your changes will make life so much easier ☺ 

How do the plugins break? Will plugins have to make change? In a way, it may make sense to
do this with big changes at Google I/O – that way, we just have 1 breaking change, and plugin
authors have to look at the changes just once.
