Date Mon, 10 Sep 2012 10:27:09 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-33188?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13451869#comment-13451869

Erik de Bruin commented on FLEX-33188:

The installer BADGE utility, which simply downloads the INSTALLER binary to the user's machine,
isn't an (official) release and can be found on [1] and [2] has a 'disclaimer' link opening
this page:


The installer APPLICATION, the source of which is an official release, includes a 'disclaimer'
button on it's UI which opens this page:


I've updated these files to reflect various concerns about information about binaries and
official releases.

>             Project: Apache Flex
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: InstallApacheFlex
>            Reporter: Bertrand Delacretaz
>            Assignee: OmPrakash Muppirala
>             Fix For: InstalApacheFlex 1.0
> IIUC InstallApacheFlex automatically downloads Flex binaries (FLEX-33187).
> As the ASF does not release binaries [1], I think the installer needs to warn its users
that they should get the source code instead if they want an ASF release.
