Subject Re: [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-18) flex-sdk-description.xml description not descriptive enough

Yes that's correct.  This file (as far as I know) is only used in Flash Builder to show the
name of the SDK. Other IDE's might use it but not 100% sure.

If you compile the SDK for any other locale or a flash player version previously the description
wasn't enough to tell you what it was compiled for this could cause some confusion.

Each compile of the SDK will be for one player global (and one locale using framework_build.xml).
The version of player global directly related to the version of the flash player you are targeting
so it will use only one version of it. The build.xml scripts have to the option to compile
for multiple locales but I've not modified those fully (yet) as I'm waiting on further donations
from Adobe.

Does that clear things up?
