> android-activityName doesn't set value correctly
> ------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: CB-10917
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Android
>    Affects Versions: 5.1.1
>            Reporter: Jacob Weber
>            Priority: Minor
> {{android-activityName}} in config.xml is undocumented, but it's necessary for making
older apps work with the latest version of Cordova; once you've published an app, you can't
change the activity name.
> But if you set {{android-activityName="Foo"}}, it will set {{<activity android:name="Foo">}}
in the manifest. According to the [Android docs|],
the value should start with a period, e.g. {{<activity android:name=".Foo">}}.
> I have already published an app with the period, so I have to manually add it to the
manifest before publishing.
> Since this could break compatibility with existing apps if you start inserting the period
now, maybe a workaround would be: if {{android-activityName}} starts with a period, use it
in the manifest, but remove it when creating the Java file.
