I must strongly disagree. If you can't even create a new project in FB
with the latest SDK release, we are going to have a lot of negative
karma send our way. Not to mention the consequences of having less
experienced and new users try to run an EMPTY application and fail -
and then have to debug it, not having a clue.

That is not the way we should do stuff. The vote passed when the
current two 'show stopper' issues were not known. The fact that the
letter of the Apache Way was followed doesn't mean that we are not now
going very much against the spirit of it.

I want to release. I agree that a release is long over due. I think we
should, in the future, release earlier and more often. But I also
think that quality is key. If we start releasing code that doesn't
even compile an empty project template in the most used IDE... I don't

It's an inconvenience at most, nothing to do with the SDK itself, and not everyone uses Flash
Builder. I'm not sure we can ever fix the issue, without revering the version number to 4.9.2
or something silly. We should be asking Adobe to fix it not using it as yet another excuse
to not make a release.

I'm willing to give a couple of days grace to see if any solutions for any "outstanding" issues
can be found and consider creating a new release candidate to put up for another vote, but
beyond they can go into the next point release, anything more than that is really going against
Apache policy.
