Fix --with-gradle by removing outdated Gecko
liuche & ahunt tried this independently at some point and it broke during packaging.
(In reply to Michael Comella (:mcomella) from comment #0) > liuche & ahunt tried this independently at some point and it broke during > packaging. First guess: new Gradle has changed the classes.dex path around https://dxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/mobile/android/base/Makefile.in#218.
Not working on this currently, if others want to pick it up.

> Perhaps my options are unusual? I'll try without the packaging flags. Aha! Without "export MOZ_DISABLE_GECKOVIEW=1", I see a failure packaging. This is interesting, because the GV hacks right now really can't be supported under --with-gradle. (Of course, we can do GV /right/ using --with-gradle, but that's some work.) <snip> 0:12.92 176452 classes.dex (OK) 0:12.92 Verification succesful 0:12.93 Android geckolibs.aar packaging is disabled 0:12.93 make: Entering directory `/Users/nalexander/Mozilla/gecko/objdir-droid/mobile/android/geckoview_library' 0:14.10 cp: ../../../mobile/android/base/*.jar: No such file or directory 0:14.10 make: *** [package] Error 1 0:14.10 make: Leaving directory `/Users/nalexander/Mozilla/gecko/objdir-droid/mobile/android/geckoview_library' 0:14.10 make: *** [make-package-internal] Error 2 0:14.10 make: Leaving directory `/Users/nalexander/Mozilla/gecko/objdir-droid/mobile/android/installer' 0:14.10 make: *** [make-package] Error 2 0:14.10 make: Leaving directory `/Users/nalexander/Mozilla/gecko/objdir-droid/mobile/android/installer' 0:14.10 make: *** [default] Error 2 0:14.10 make: Leaving directory `/Users/nalexander/Mozilla/gecko/objdir-droid/mobile/android/installer' 0:14.10 make: *** [package] Error 2 0:14.10 make: Leaving directory `/Users/nalexander/Mozilla/gecko/objdir-droid'
The best kind of patch: bulk deletion. This removes two separate but similar build flags, and an unsupported integration piece. The first packaged Fennec's resources into an ill-defined GeckoView archive; the second built on the first to produce an Android ARchive for external consumption. Neither of these artifacts are supported or have consumers; in fact, they mislead potential consumers, since they're known to be broken. The Gradle build work under the --with-gradle flag, and significant follow-up, is the path forward if Mozilla wants to invest in packaging GeckoView on Android for external consumption. That is, rather than hacking together AAR files, we'll use the well-supported Gradle mechanisms for building and publishing such libraries.

myk: nothing for you to do here, just wanted this to be on your radar. This removes a lot of packaging cruft that's similar to what GV wants, but isn't how it should be accomplished.
