 Could you prepare a commit with both of those changes as the first of
 those commits does not fully fix the problem?
 > Sure I'll get that fixed. I have been working off master, so I didn't
 want to rebase in case anyone else was using the library but now that we
 have brought in the code, I'll work off the branches with rebases.

 mention the reason for that in the commit message)
 > This may be an issue for further discussion. My idea has been to create
 a library for general use in the community so I wanted to keep the Android
 versions updated. Otherwise, we lock developers into older versions of
 Android Studio and dependencies, which makes adoption more difficult.
 > The versions are isolated to the properties files so changes are easy.
 As long our patches for the versions still work, this seems a good

 Works for me. I'd like to have in the commit message a hint, though, what
 makes the update necessary or why we are doing it (maybe it's a new SDK we
 want to support, maybe a new Android version, maybe...), just so that one
 has something to reason about whether the actual change is good/necessary.

 those ourselves during the build?
 > This is also related to general community use. I want this to work
 outside of tor-browser-build. Ideally, when things are stable (which looks
 very close), we will get the TOPL libraries pushed to a maven repo, rather
 than including them in the libs directory.

 Okay, yes, please. Meanwhile I am fine having them in the repo, although
 I'd like to avoid that as a permanent solution.
