Subject Re: [RT] Voting Result was [VOTE][FLEX-7] package "org.apache.flex"
Date Wed, 04 Apr 2012 05:50:21 GMT
The issue Flex-1[1] contains all the steps that need to be done to 
graduate. It contains Flex-7[2] to which this vote was about.

The discussion has been taken on before,
      *) Other projects/companies can not argue about using "org.apache" 
as it clearly states "property of apache org"
      *) Changing the namespace would be a sign of progress ...
      *) The mx/spark packages are well known and no-one in the flash 
world would try to use them
      *) We'd have to rework a LOT of documentation, classes etc. in 
short tons of work
      *) Any depending project  (many!) would need to change their 
references to match the change
