Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Flex Tool API 1.0.0
Date Thu, 13 Nov 2014 20:00:05 GMT
Hi Chris,

+1 (binding)

Looks good, especially for a first time releasing Apache Flex stuff.

Couple of things:

1) The artifacts are not viewable from the browser.  The browser just
serves the pom.xml file.  But they are there and the approval scripts get

2) The script couldn’t find your key.  Can you add your key to the KEYS
file in flex-sdk and push it to
https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/release/flex/ or I can push it to dist
after you update KEYS in flex-sdk.

I grabbed your key from a keys server and then the signature could be
verified.  When you get to ApacheCon, see if you can get Justin to sign
your key.

I pushed an approval script to the repo.  Anybody who wants to use it to
test the build can choose the script or perform the steps individually
some other way.  To use the approval script, make sure you have both Ant
and Maven installed and in your PATH, then copy the script to an empty
folder and from that folder type:

 ant -e -f ApproveFlexToolAPI.xml -Drelease.version=1.0.0

Wasn’t sure what tests to run, so I just dumped the main jar and saw it
had the right number of .class files and a reasonable MANIFEST.MF.
