relying on a recovery email address for a google account might put you in the rain.
google should make clear that they take a recovery email as an option they might just neglect.

had valid password, could not log in as google assumed unauthorized access -> asked for recovery mail, entered code -> won't let log in anyway :(

was lucky to have that dev account on one of my devices still active -> removed no langer valid phone number, changed password, got mail about login attempt on other device, told it's OK -> proceed with work

The #nitrokey people are starting to make some pre crowdfunding campaign noise and I'm glad to help as I'd like to buy a NK Storage (does encryption, otp, ... + has encrypted storage).

Ansich eine Selbstverständlichkeit. Bemerkenswert, dass es wie eine Aussenseitermeinung wirkt.

from a presentation at #FossGIS2014  about Vaadin I learned that the migration path from Vaadin6 / vOpenlayers with OpenLayers 2.1x to Vaadin 7 (current version) and OpenLayers 3 (still beta, production release available in near future) isn't built yet and will need a decent amount work.
 * Changes betweenVaadin 6 and Vaadin 7
 * Big changes in OpenLayers API (Version 2 -> 3)

This summer GWT3 probably will become available and "will have a better interop with JS libraries".

Are there plans or ist there already work in progress for a GWT3/OpenLayers3 wrapper?

No good news if they are true. Seems that the O in AOSP has to be written pretty small.

Found a pretty informative blog post concerning Android/AOSP.

A small teaser:
While it might not be an official requirement, being granted a Google apps license will go a whole lot easier if you join the Open Handset Alliance. The OHA is a group of companies committed to Android—Google's Android—and members are contractually prohibited from building non-Google approved devices. That's right, joining the OHA requires a company to sign its life away and promise to not build a device that runs a competing Android fork.
Acer was bit by this requirement when it tried to build devices that ran Alibaba's Aliyun OS in China. Aliyun is an Android fork, and when Google got wind of it, Acer was told to shut the project down or lose its access to Google apps. 
This makes life extremely difficult for the only company brazen enough to sell an Android fork in the west: Amazon. Since the Kindle OS counts as an incompatible version of Android, no major OEM is allowed to produce the Kindle Fire for Amazon. So when Amazon goes shopping for a manufacturer for its next tablet, it has to immediately cross Acer, Asus, Dell, Foxconn, Fujitsu, HTC, Huawei, Kyocera, Lenovo, LG, Motorola, NEC, Samsung, Sharp, Sony, Toshiba, and ZTE off the list. Currently, Amazon contracts Kindle manufacturing out to Quanta Computer, a company primarily known for making laptops. Amazon probably doesn't have many other choices.
