Will Android Arch Comps be supported

The post titled Will Xamarin support the new Android Architecture Component is the only info I found regarding Android Arch Comps for Xamarin Android so far.

There are 3 NuGet Xamarin.Android.Arch packages released (last update 4 months ago), which only cover Lifecycle:

Xamarin.Android.Arch.Core.Common 1.0.0
Xamarin.Android.Arch.Lifecycle.Common 1.0.1
Xamarin.Android.Arch.Lifecycle.Runtime 1.0.0

What about LiveData, Room and ViewModel ?

Thanks.

    Looks like they won't be binded yet. Will depend on the demand.

    We decided to only bind the small subset of Architecture Component libraries that are required dependencies by other support libraries for now. We haven't seen a lot of demand for the Architecture Components as there are a number of alternative and more cross platform ways to do data binding in .NET. Not against adding them by any means, they just haven't been a priority yet.
