Questions on opencore in Android

   After having gone through the discussions on "OPENCORE" in Android, the
idea one would have is "opencore 2.x is supported only in master and all the
other branches/tags are based out of opencore 1.x". My local repo is
initailized using "repo init -u git:// -b android-sdk-1.5_r1", I do
see the OPENCORE git is checked out with respect to "android-sdk-1.5_r1"
tag. As I'm in the process of porting the source code corresponds to
"android-sdk-1.5_r1  TAG", I would like get some answers for the following

   1. Assume I have some third party OMX plugins that have been ported for "
   opencore" sources release as part of "android-1.1"  version, what would
   be best appraoch while migrating to "android-sdk-1.5_r1", should I move to
   opencore-1.x or stay with opencore-2.x ?
   2. How exactly do you differentiate between opencore-1.x and opencore-2.x
   in terms of features (for example video encoding/recording capability) ?
   3. Would it be a good idea to manually checkout "master" in opencore in
   the "android-sdk-1.5_r1" repo ? Will this break the build or loose some
   features ?
   4. Is there any documentation that gives a better view of related points
   ? If any, please let me know.
   5. Is there any specific reason to stick to opencore-1.x in
   "android-sdk-1.5_r1 tag" though the master has been migrated to opencore-2.x

Warm Regards,

Peserta yang mendaftar sudah memenuhi kuota, bahkan melebihi.

Gathering id-android selalu mengutamakan kekeluargaan  dan
kebersamaan, jika tidak terdaftar di list peserta gathering (100
orang) masih tetap diperbolehkan datang, dengan konsekwensi, misalnya:

-Tidak mendapat tempat duduk
-Tidak mendapat snack
-Tidak mendapat minum

Saya percaya, tujuan utama kita gahering adalah untuk berbagi ilmu,
lebih mengakrabkan antar sesama member komunitas ID Android, BUKAN
untuk cari makan gratis, minum gratis dll.
