Subject AW: AW: Missing BlazeDS repo on the sources page
Date Thu, 31 Jul 2014 15:50:31 GMT
Hi Alex,

Wellt hey are Nightly builds, because they are built every night ;-)

All Flex related artifacts are located under the following url (so far it's only blazeds related):

But what should the artifacts be if not binary jars? And binaries is what the Maven repos
are all about.

Pretty sure that SNAPSHOTs have been ruled as equivalent to nightly builds so we're probably

What jars are in the repo?  We should not have binaries in the repos.
