NB Android is its own open source project. See:
You should be able to find better help there though it doesn't
look as active (last forum posts seem to be from September). I'm
not sure who all is doing NB Android.

Sorry if this has an obvious answer:
I'm trying to get started with Android development. Things
started off easy enough - I was able to download/install the
latest NBAndroid plugin into my NB (7.2, using JDK 1.6u37 on
MacOSX). When I subsequently clicked on Tools->Android SDK
Manager, it asked for a path to the SDK. Since I didn't have
that, I downloaded the latest of that and then, since I didn't
know what I was doing, followed the directions in the SDK read
me and did "tools/android update sdk --no-ui" - which proceeded
to download every Android version under the sun :-( After all
that was done, I restarted NB and went into Tools->Android
SDK Manager again - giving it the directory into which the SDK
and all its updates resided and, sure enough, the SDK Manager
showed all the different Android platforms and add-ons, etc.
All of them showed as "Installed".
But when I went to open a new Android Project, the screen
tells me that a "Target Android Platform must be specified" but
the list of available platforms is empty. There's a button that
just gets me back to the Preferences->Miscellaneous where one
specifies the location of the SDK. Not much help there.
So I go back into the Tools->Android SDK Manager and
uninstall every platform other than Android 4.2 (API 17). But
that doesn't seem to do anything - I still just see an empty
list of platforms on the New->Project->Android App wizard
I'm missing something really simple, aren't I? But what that
is, I have no idea. And the NB screens aren't helpful at all
(oh, did I mention that nothing happens when I click on "Help"
in New Project->Android Application"?)
Attached are screen shots of the relevant screens. Thanks in
advance for any help/info.
p.s. if someone could forward a mis-spelling to the developer
who did "New Android Application" screen: the word "Platform" is
misspelled in the label "Target Platform".
