You should include udev rules for android usb devices, so you don't have to use sudo to execute adb command or fastboot command.
You can find udev file here:
Ubuntu package for android-tools already contains that udev.rules file (contained it package android-sdk-platform-tools-common)
You can put it in files/ or download it from git and install it using package.yml on correct location /usr/lib/udev/rules.d

@chax: Okay, thanks for the tip. I'll take a look at it. (though I didn't have to use sudo to run adb anyway)

hmmmm, i can see that this can be installed from third party repository already.

Indeed it can, but that's a suboptimal situation. Not that this package is the crème de la crème, but it's a start ^^
For one this is pretty outdated, but building from Android source code directly is a horror show.
