comment What exactly does the condition in the MIT license imply?
Exactly. It's not unusual for a large product to include several such copyright notices. For example, check out about:license in Firefox.

comment What is development automation?
IMHO, "development automation" is a contradictio in adiecto; every task that can be automated is a priori not development in the strict sense.

comment Can I sell forked GPL code?
"Why might anyone pay for it?" - Simple: To get it initially. The GPL doesn't say you must provide it for free; instead, you can charge as much as you want, but you have to allow your client to offer it for free, and you must provide the source and the right to change it, distribute it etc. Therefore, if you have created a very useful nontrivial fork of a GPLed program, and someone desperately needs it, you can set the price as you would for a proprietary product. Caveeat: You can only do that once, since the first client can always become your competitor for the second client.

comment Tablets Running IDEs
I think it also provides a very quick start into writing "my first android app" (aka hello-world) apps, to get your toes wet. Getting Eclipse on the PC up and ready takes some time, while installing AIDE is just a click in the PlayStore.
