This information is for people who use Linux and are comfortable with C/C++/Java development. Game engines are not covered here, only SDKs. This post will be updated over time to reflect new developments and further learnings.

1. Google's official Android SDK

Pros: Well-documented. Known to work if the given instructions are followed.
Cons: Requires the SDK Manager and agreeing to proprietary license terms. (May be installable via Debian packages rather than the SDK Manager, but YMMV.)

2. Debian's Android SDK

Pros: Secure and stable. Easy to install.
Cons: Broken. Please reply here if you have any further information.

3. Beuc's Android SDK rebuilds

Pros: Includes most of the official libraries.
Cons: Limited documentation.
