    Description

      After discussion on slack, we should deprecate ADT:

      @jmaury @sbouchet @psrna @bodavis Hi, I was looking at Android Develpment tools(we have it in CRS Central), but it seems to be it is not supported by Google for some time: https://android-developers.googleblog.com/2016/11/support-ended-for-eclipse-android.html
      
      Bob Davis  3:06 PM
      If it’s not supported/maintained, we should remove it, IMO
      
      Stéphane Bouchet  3:16 PM
      Currently it is listed on central, as tested, not deprecated.
      as we did for last codeready release, we should first deprecate it before removing it from central. (edited) 
      
      Bob Davis  3:18 PM
      Agreed - if that’s the process, we should do that. It’s been deprecated by the upstream, so we should follow suit. Is there a replacement we can direct people to? (should we worry about that? I can try to see if we have any stats on usage)
      
      Stéphane Bouchet  3:19 PM
      Err, yes, the replacement is to use Android Studio, based on IDEA :smile:
      
      Bob Davis  3:20 PM
      Sigh…
      
      Stéphane Bouchet  3:22 PM
      yes, there was an alternative on eclipse, https://projects.eclipse.org/projects/tools.andmore, but no new release since 2017 :disappointed:

      @maxandersen is listed on the contributors. maybe he can add a note ?
      
      Bob Davis  3:36 PM
      Isn’t @maxandersen listed as a contributor on most anything a person would want to use?
      :joy:
