Merge remote-tracking branch 'aosp/upstream' into master * aosp/upstream: Add Context.VisitDirectDeps Test: builds Change-Id: Ia66dde30a7af4d37aa0557341ab5d41953053cf1
Blueprint is a meta-build system that reads in Blueprints files that describe modules that need to be built, and produces a Ninja manifest describing the commands that need to be run and their dependencies. Where most build systems use built-in rules or a domain-specific language to describe the logic for converting module descriptions to build rules, Blueprint delegates this to per-project build logic written in Go. For large, heterogenous projects this allows the inherent complexity of the build logic to be maintained in a high-level language, while still allowing simple changes to individual modules by modifying easy to understand Blueprints files.
