whiteboard/ApacheFlexPatches/frameworks and apply the patches there, and
once all Adobe's donation code is in trunk/frameworks then merge branches
in the whiteboard area back into Adobe's donation so we can start with the
correct baseline. We can merge patches from different people into this
staging area and then merge it back into trunk. At least its been my
experience that branching in SVN in general sucks if you try to pick
commits here and there to merge, at the least, its a PITA. That would be my
recommendation but if someone wants to correct me on a better SVN approach
I'm all ears. I've been mainly a Git user for a long time so my SVN isn't
as fresh as it used to be.
