Subject [Discuss]Accept donation of drawing APIs
Date Sun, 17 Apr 2016 11:06:44 GMT
Lizhi has put together some impressive classes to implement the Flash drawing APIs for FlexJS
using Canvas.[1]

Lizhi has offered to donate the code[2] and I believe has just filed an ICLA.

The question now remains whether we want to include the code. I personally see a lot of value
in the code as it offers a lot of functionality users are used to out of the box using the
same APIs.

I do have some questions about accepting the code:
1. Whether to keep the packages as they are. Currently, they use the flash.* packages to match
the ones in playerglobal. One the one hand, this makes a lot of sense in terms of migrating
code because everything stays exactly the same. On the other hand, the package names are misleading
as it’s not “Flash” packages. The alternate would be to wrap things in apache flex packages,
but that would add a lot of work in terms of conditional compilation and redirection. I also
don’t know if there are legal issues with using the “flash” package. I can’t imagine
what they might be, but INOL…

2. How should these files be organized in FlexJS? This might be related to the package names,
but might not. I assume this is not “core”. Should it all go into a single project, or
should it be split up into multiple projects?
