Ruboto should synchronise target in and targetSdkVersion in AndroidManifest.xml #303

It is possible to set different values for target in and targetSdkVersion in AndroidManifest.xml. The result is that you may change the target level in the manifest, but still compile against a different target level set by the project properties. I see this as a fault in the Android SDK.

Ruboto could look at both versions and either give a warning/error message or synch the values. If we synch the values, we need to decide which of the values should be master, or if we shoudl choose the minimum or maximum of the values.

This originated from a support case with @jsilverMDX.

@ruboto @rscottm @jsilverMDX What do you think?


I support this. This and load time are my own real complaint from here. Will JRuby JIT speed up load time much? (sorry to derail...)


Finally revisiting this one. @jsilverMDX Are you able to explain how this should behave? I can add a warning during "ruboto update" if the values differ.
