Minutes from April 12 Android Tech Leads meeting

Several interesting threads to report:
1. Colin started a discussion about R8
R8 is Google's API compatible rewrite of Proguard that promises better
build times and a "full mode" that can do better than PG but requires
integration effort. Colin would like *Mozilla to use R8 ASAP and aim
for full mode in the near future*. If you can help push your project
towards R8, please do -- it's trivial to try it out.
2. Fenix suffers from a Kotlin coroutine implementation issue that costs
us 100s of milliseconds at startup. There's a fix, and *Fenix will have
that fix by the time it ships*.
3. There was some discussion of an Android-specific Capture the Flag
exercise at the June All-Hands. Volunteers to hoist the flags please talk
to +Colin Mark Foster Lee <colee at mozilla.com> or +Jeff Boek
<jboek at mozilla.com>.
4. Finally, there was some discussion of Android-specific asks for the
releng organization. Next step is for +Nicholas Alexander
<nalexander at mozilla.com> to raise that discussion to releng managers.
See the notes
for more details.
Yours in service,
