Subject: [VOTE] Oprtional MVC/IOC Frameworks Donation: Swiz Framework 

This vote comes from an original vote thread declared as null (see original
thread for info about motivations):


The new vote thread is considering the donation of the optional MVC/IOC
Swiz Framework.

Points taken from the original vote thread:

* 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
designed. * 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).

Here's the new points from Alex Harui to make clear what it implies:

1) Swiz goes in its own repo.  The original proposal says it could go into
a folder under utilities, but I think flexunit is a better model.
2) Swiz will have active development but release separately from the SDK.
The activity level isn't quite clear from the original proposal.  People
need to be comfortable that this activity isn't an endorsement or
3) Acceptance of Swiz is not an endorsement or favoritism.
4) Any other app framework is welcomed to be donated via the same process.

This vote thread will be open for the next 72 hours

Please make your vote.
