Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-33186) Procedure for signing InstallApacheFlex releases
Date Mon, 10 Sep 2012 09:19:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-33186?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13451834#comment-13451834

Bertrand Delacretaz commented on FLEX-33186:

I think we need a bit more context as to what signing these releases mean, what's signed,
what does the signature mean and what would happen if the previous release manager is not
available to pass the above credentials on.

If the signed .p12 file is included in a Flex release (source code - the ASF doesn't release
binaries), the Incubator PMC needs to be able to understand what's going on to approve the

If this is only about convenience binaries, it's back to FLEX-33188 which IMO shows the need
for Flex to have an explanation page about binaries at http://incubator.apache.org/flex/
