Since this isn't actually at the ASF yet, why don't we take this off list for the moment.
Email me: labriola at acm.org

I will explain the few hurdles I see. I am not particularly fluent with Maven so it may be
that you see easy work arounds and that we can get this all up and running easily with Yennick's

Subject: AW: [OT] Current status on Flexunit4?

Hi Mike,

Glad that you sorted out the confusion about FlexUnit and its versions ... this really had
me worried a little now and then :-)

Seems you are having the same problem I was having with Flexmojos. Velo as the main contributor
also seems to have left the Flex road and I was willing to keep it alive. So I joined that
project and took over its development. 

What exactly do you need help with? My current solution was to upload 4.1.0-flex to my companies
repo and to make Flexmojos work with that (Had to do a little refactoring of FM to support
parameterized tests, but got it working nicely). Currently the only problem I am having is
that I can't push my FM changes back to the main trunk because the dependency to flexunit-4.1.0-flex
is hosted nowhere. Would it be possible to simply upload the artifact somewhere publically?
Or would there be any problems with this (It seems the 4.0-RC2 was uploaded by Velo into the
Sonatype Maven Repo). I didn't want to do this on my own as it's not my software. If you could
do that however it would be great and I would be pleased to push my stuff back to trunk.

Betreff: RE: [OT] Current status on Flexunit4?

without the RC2).

FlexUnit 4.x is the successor to the FlexUnit .85 version you discussed.
FlexUnit 4.1 is the current release (http://www.flexunit.org/?page_id=14) it is slightly different
than the RCs before it.
FlexUnit 4.2 is the version that will be contributed to Apache

Part of the confusion comes from the fact that only the older (RC) versions were submitted
to a public repo. A number of people have contributed infrastructure fixes to the project
to make it easier to push it to a repo, however, none of them are complete. Part of the issue
is that FlexUnit really has two flavors. There is an AS only version and a version with Flex
dependencies. This is an unfortunate side effect of trying to marry to Flex, which is light
on interfaces and heavy on implementations.

At the time that development last stopped, the project was being refactored to handle this
differently and hence make it all a little more maven friendly (slated to be version 4.2).
That is the version which will be contributed to ASF.

Yennick did some excellent work getting us 99.5% to submitting automatically to a Maven repo
(https://github.com/SlevinBE/flexunit/commit/d9dc78955ed31e7ed11d390c2c38fb639b2227bc) so,
to that end, I am happy to have any help getting things finalized and actually brought over.
The reality of the situation is that everyone actively working on FlexUnit has left the Flex
community. This means that any work on FlexUnit presently is being done solely by me and between
a million other things. That means its slow going so happy to have anyone who wants to help,
