Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Flex FalconJX 0.0.2 RC3
Date Thu, 10 Jul 2014 15:20:32 GMT
+1

- sigs good
- build completes successfully
- Falcon builds correctly functioning SWF from vf2js_DataBindingTest

Note:
- the 'ApproveFalcon' script failed, complaining my ASJS_HOME prop wasn't
set, when an 'echo $ASJS_HOME' proved it wrong.
- I cannot build a JS release, as FalconJX is not build by 'ant main', nor
does it function as a standalone compiler (see [DISCUSS])
