After reporting yesterday how closure of the Android-X86 project on Google code was imminent common sense has prevailed and the the ban threat has now been lifted.
It seems the issue stems from Google’s automated attempts to fish out people using Google code for file hosting, and/or malware. Google use processes that search for Code projects that host files for download, but don’t provide source code for those files. The Android-X86 project hosts their source code on their own server, due to the fact that when they signed up to Google code, git repo’s were not available on Google code. It’s good to see Google acting so swiftly on this, and maybe they will also look at the process used before a banning order is served.
