Announcement text: 
The Droid typeface family was designed in the fall of 2006 by

set of system fonts for its Android platform. The goal was to provide 
optimal quality and comfort on a mobile handset when rendered in 
application menus, web browsers and for other screen text. The Droid 
family of fonts consists of Droid Serif, Droid Sans and Droid Sans Mono,

Android Git tree.

This package provides support for this font in LaTeX. It is licensed under 
the LaTeX project public license version 1.3c or above, except the fonts 
delivered under the Apache License version 2.0. Notice that this
