Many of the Google Apps depend on APIs that aren't in the open source
distribution (e.g. for login). If you are interested, there is quite a
bit of discussion on the android-platform list
( around what to do
about the missing APIs and applications.

I've been working on an open source clone of the proprietary Google

android-on-freerunner project.
