If people need to decide which API they should target for Android using Xamarin.Forms there doesn't seem to be any way to figure out which APIs are supported. There's this discussion (https://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/comment/55042/#Comment_55042), but according to a comment here (http://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/comment/144895#Comment_144895) that discussion may be out of date. I couldn't find anything official. This is important information and should be clearly documented somewhere that is searchable.
This information is currently available in the Getting Started guide
it was moved here when the getting-started doc was added, from the Introduction doc...
...where it was previously documented.
I can immediately see one improvement that we can make - mentioning the API level *as well as* the version (4.0.3) - but otherwise we'll investigate other options to make this more discoverable.
I think using the term "minimum API" at least would make it more google-able. Like I said, I tried finding that information, but I couldn't find it. The forums discussion came up in search results, but the getting started doc did not.
Agreed - we should also cover the warning from this post
..and possibly link to this doc
