            Reporter: roucaries bastien


Hi,

Apache flex is not really distribution friendly particularly for debian (I plan to package
it).
1. You use a monolithic build tree. It means that we should take a take it all approach. It
slow down the packaging work and render review (by legal team) slow. Could be possible to
have a modularized approach ? I means that every jar in lib/ has it own package and we could
compile independantly, and does not need to source include them. I am mainly interested on
mxmlc not debugger.
2. Could be possible then to do not use and even get source needing air/ Adobe Flash Player
Content Debugger (it seems possible I compiled mxmlc without it) ? It is not free and not
suitable for distro.
3. Could be possible to use your packaged saxon/xerces/javacc/battikk and so on. If not could
you document why and include patch from upstream (as a distro we could include it on your
package).
4. Could be possible to use joola for playerglobal [1] see also tamarin project [2]

Thank you very much

Bastien
