Subject Re: Proof-of-Concept: Studio Project Structure Cleanup
Date Mon, 10 Jul 2017 22:20:33 GMT

After the eslint merge, I redid the PR, so here's the new branch for the
StudioProjectCleanup.  Can more people look at it, I'll be working on some
refactors on here, but AFAIK, there's no good reason to not merge this into
master and get ready to start ramping up Cordova-Android 7.0.0

Any thoughts?
