Subject [VOTE] Release Apache FlexJS 0.7.0 RC1
Date Mon, 05 Sep 2016 14:39:22 GMT

This is vote for the 0.7.0 release of Apache FlexJS.

The release candidate can be found here;

Before voting please review the section,'What are the ASF requirements on
approving a release?', at:

At a minimum you would be expected to check that:
- MD5 and signed packages are correct
- README, RELEASE_NOTES, NOTICE and LICENSE files are all fine
- That the build script completes successfully
- That you can compile and cross-compile a simple example using the SDK.

The source package is set up the same way as the repo.  This means that
the results of the build are not the same as an IDE-compatible SDK.  The
compiled source package can be used in combination with the FalconJX
source package to compile some of the sample applications.

The most convenient way to use the binary package is to install it via Ant
or the Installer.  To use an Installer you must use InstallApacheFlex
version 3.1 or later.  You can get InstallApacheFlex here:

Please vote to approve this release:
+1 Approve the release
-1 Veto the release (please provide specific comments to why)

This vote will be open for 72 hours or until a result can be called.

The vote passes if there is:
- At least 3 +1 votes from the PMC
- More positive votes than negative votes

Remember that this is a 'beta-quality' release so I expect there
will be many bugs found.  IMO the goal is not to try to find and fix bugs
in the RC, but to make sure we have the packaging right, and enough
functionality that folks will have some success trying to use it.

People who are not in PMC are also encouraged to test out the release and
vote, although their votes will not be binding, they can influence how the
PMC votes.

When voting please indicate what OS, IDE, Flash Player version and AIR
version you tested with.

For your convenience, there is an ant script that automates the common
steps to validate a release.  Instead of individually downloading the
package and signature files, unzipping, etc, you can instead:
1) create an empty folder,
2) download into that folder this file:
3) run the script: ant -e -f ApproveFlexJS.xml -Drelease.version=0.7.0 -Drc=1

You are not required to use this script, and more testing of the packages
and build results are always encouraged.

Please put all discussion about this release in the DISCUSSION thread not
this VOTE thread.
