Subject Re: SDK Inclusion Process (was re: [OT] What are we doing here?)

BTW I don't think that in order to be submitted that code must address 100% of the list we
not want the bar too high. People can apply patch after code is submitted to fill in gaps
etc. but it still useful to document what work may still be required to have a first class

Perhaps we need to keep a list of donated components and colour code them to how "complete"
they are and what coudl be done to improve them? Someting like
but on the wiki?

Great idea. I had not filled out a JIRA enhancement to add the PostCodeValidator to the SDK
and probably should do so.

I have to say I (respectfully) disagree with Michael here. There's is a portion of Flex SDK
users that were helped by HGroup and VGroup (as they were use to the old way of doing things).
Not all users of the SDK are expert developers. Expert developers can choice to ignore features
like that if they want to, and other than a small increase to SDK size there's no penalty
for not using them. I actually find I still use VGroup and HGroup even though I know I can
use Group, but then I wouldn't be too upset if they didn't exist.
