Subject RE: [DISCUSS] Discuss Release Apache Flex SDK Installer 3.1 - RC3
Date Mon, 30 Jun 2014 07:04:57 GMT
Would the vote be consensus?  If so, it is guaranteed to lose.
If the vote is majority and loses, does that prevent me from using the script?  Or sharing
with others via some other place other than the repo?

I guess I don't see how we can legislate against individuals using scripts.  But I do agree
that we don't want to keep arguing this topic.

Let us vote on this verification scripts and formalize it, please.  We
don't want to argue this point during every RC.

Thanks,
