Subject [VOTE] Swiz Framework Donation to Apache Flex
Date Wed, 29 May 2013 09:43:28 GMT
After proposal thread (http://markmail.org/message/jtedmmx5djqen52l),comes
the vote thread.

This thread is to decide if we finally adopt Swiz Framework under Apache
Flex, since there is multiple opinions in the Apache Flex community.

points to take into account:

* Swiz is a great addition to Apache Flex since it complements de SDK with
a microarquitecture for application MVC, IOC, DI very simple and well
* This will be a project like flexunit or utilities. So it's optional a NOT
part of the main sdk.
* Swiz is already in 1.4.0 stable version, under Apache License 2.0, has
its community and right now there's no maintenance or upgrade since people
behind the project is no longer working with Flex technology.
* Donation will be 1.4.0 source code and wiki content.
* Future plans: if donation is successful, Chris Scott (creator of Swiz)
will want to donate experimental 2.0.0 branch that brings AOP support, a
feature that could bring a great benefit to Apache Flex since it brings
something very new to client web technologies and that will require
evolution at compiler level (introducing compile time weaving).

Points that some people argument to not accept the donation:
* There is other frameworks like Swiz out there in the same situation and
this donation could make Swiz the preferred/recommended IOC framework of

Points to take into account:
* Erik de bruin stated that maybe the problem is "what to do with it" under
Apache Flex umbrella.

Please make your vote.
