Hi there,

I have recently synced the android-t-beta-3 branch.
However, it appears to be missing APIs which were introduced long before even Beta2.

One example is LineBreakConfig, which was introduced in DP1
(https://developer.android.com/sdk/api_diff/t-dp2-incr/changes) but is not yet available in android-t-beta-3.
Another one is Context.revokeSelfPermissionOnKill, which is not available at

I would like to get a better understanding of the semantics of Beta branches.

My expectation, based on the sentence "It is not a full platform update and only for reference." would be that either:
- a Beta3 tag does not exist for a repo (because, as stated in the posts in this thread, "It is not a full platform update")
or, if a tag does exist, 
- it contains the Beta3 code.

I am struggling to appreciate the intention behind tagging, a Beta3 branch (android-t-beta-3) which does not
actually contain Beta3 code for that specific repo.

Could anyone clarify intention and semantics of Beta branches?
How can they be used "for reference" if they do not actually contain code from Beta releases?
