Can I have a scrolling element inside another?

I think I already have the answer, but I just want to make sure if
mine is correct: 'NO'.
As far as I understood, when I put a scrolling element inside another,
the child scrolling element can't be scrolled.
I don't know why, and I think this should be reported as a bug of
Android if this is not some kind of concept or something, so I've been
trying to find a document which describes this, but I failed.

I've seen some responses from several people about this issue and they
all said that I can't have this kind of UI.
What I'm wondering is, is there any 'official' document about this? or
at least is there any bug report/comment from Google that this is not
possible with the current Android?

When I tried to build a screen with a EditText inside of a ScrollView
where the EditText extends as I type more(sure it has its limit, so
once it becomes longer than its limit, it will have a scrollbar), I
can't scroll the text inside of EditText and it really makes me

If there's anyone who can answer this question with any 'official'
reference, that will be greatly appreciated.
Or at least if anyone from Google gives me a response on this matter,
that would be awesome. =D
(My boss wants me to find a legit excuse for this matter, that's why I
want that =(. )

Thank you!

1. Strange Question

Hello Developers,

This is going to sound really strange but please bear with me.
I have developed a couple of applications and although they are not
the worlds greatest they do have quite a good loyal following.
Now unfortunately I have to go into hospital for a few months (maybe
more) and obviously I am not going to be around to do any development,
or fixes etc.

I would like some advice on how I can approach my users with this ?
I do not have their contact information, nor anyway to get in contact
with them directly.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
