There is a small gear icon at the right-bottom corner in Android SDK Manager, which is available in Visual Studio for Mac (VS4M->Tools ->SDK Manager).
It allows to choose one of the available repositories. The options are:
By default, the Google Repository is selected, though it's not recommended (as the option's name states).
If I choose Microsoft Repository (recommended one), I see following differences in the list of available platforms and tools:
After restarting VS4M, the Google Repository is selected, despite the fact I choose Microsoft one before restart.
So, can someone explain what is the sense and purpose of this setting? Should I use Microsoft Repository to download Android SDK components? What are pros and cons? Any information (or links to information) is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
