I'm not sure why anyone would keep track of that...

If I understand correctly, Android is a fork of Linux, and each one continues to develop without trying to coordinate with the other.

Can you get the Android source at the Google website? If not, where?

I was just asking because of porting code. I have some code that works on standard Linux. So, when I port this to Android, I do this by trial and error? That's what I heard so far. "Hacking around" and so on. Is there another approach to this?

I am mainly asking because of header files and calls to Bionic.

Have you been here?
http://www.androidquestions.org/

You'll note that the format is remarkably similar to LQ....the site admin even has the same name....
