All this sounds very good.

Ideally we'd find a way to build just what we need instead of the
monolithic SDK releases, but meanwhile we can easily extract and
recompress the individual directories (platforms, platforms-tools,
etc.) :)

What is more difficult is identifying and building the other
components that the SDK manager normally provides.  The Support
libraries are the first additional components that people need; there
may be others (e.g. alternate system images) which are of lesser
priority for F-Droid.

And some space to publish everything at :)
