I'm putting together a microconf at the upcoming plumbers on how to get 
Android and its apps to coexist with standard Linux desktops:

I think it would be great if we had some folks involved in D-Bus in 
attendance in order to allow discussion on how Android's mechanisms 
(such as Intents) could be made to co-exist/communicate with D-Bus. 
D-Bus is of course already in Android since it's used for Bluetooth, but 
it's not used for anything else. All app/system-to-app/system is done 
through Intents.

Keith Packard has mentioned his interest for this microconf, so if we 
could get some folks from D-Bus to provide input I think we might be 
able to get some critical mass on moving this idea of running Android 
and its apps in standard Linux desktop from "dream" to reality.

P.S.: I didn't know anyone specifically from the the D-Bus community by 
name so I thought I'd send it to this mailing list. Let me know if 
somewhere else would be more relevant. Also, feel free to contact me 
off-list to discuss interest/scope.
