Cordova asking for target 19 dependencies (Android SDK)

When installing the cordova or phonegap "framework", "buildsystem" or whatever you call it to build Android web apps, the check_reqs script located in ~/.cordova/lib/android/cordova/3.4.0/bin/ keeps asking for unresolved dependencies.

First you have to fire "android" at the command prompt and install updates.

Then you have to install API 19 level packages.

The reason is simply that you are coding for Android Kit Kat wich is version 4.4 and API level 19.

The whole API level list (and more interesting info) is located here : http://developer.android.com/guide/topics/manifest/uses-sdk-element.html
