Subject Re: Minor issue with current build scripts
Date Wed, 29 Feb 2012 00:59:54 GMT
Justin,

Just changing the build scripts alone are not sufficient.  We need to
verify and regress TLF 3.0 with the current Flex SDK code before we can
include it in our scripts.  As Alex mentioned in the "TLF and Flex" thread,
TLF sometimes changes in a way that needs code changes in the Flex SDK.

Conversely, if TLF is donated to Apache, we may get to make changes to TLF
directly to keep things smooth.

Thanks,
Om
