---------------------------------

             Summary: Clarify in docs regarding the minimum Android level supported by Cordova
                 Key: CB-6707
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CB-6707
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Docs
            Reporter: Marcel Kinard
            Assignee: Marcel Kinard
            Priority: Minor


I had a discussion here with someone who was asking about what to use as the minSdkVersion
in Cordova. I think there are 2 issues in the docs:

1) the Platform Guide for Android in the docs still says (as of Cordova 3.4) that Android
2.2 is supported. I believe support for Froyo was removed in Cordova 3.0. That needs to be
changed to say Android 2.3 is the min supported, in all the doc versions from current back
to Cordova 3.0. (Correct?)

2) For 2.3, it's a bit ambiguous if that means API 9 (2.3.0 - 2.3.2) or API 10 (2.3.3-2.3.7).
I'd suggest that instead of just saying "2.3" in the Platform Guide for Android, that for
the minimum supported version it include the 3rd digit of the version and also state the API
level. I see in https://github.com/apache/cordova-android/blob/3.0.x/bin/templates/project/AndroidManifest.xml
that the minSdkVersion is set to 10 there. And API 9 does not appear on the Google Dashboard
( https://developer.android.com/about/dashboards/index.html ). So the documented minimum API
level should be 10.
