Subject Re: SDK as an RPM?
Date Wed, 21 Mar 2012 15:22:40 GMT
Ah, and here's the control file: (this is the package description)

Package: apache-flex
Version: 4.6
Section: devel
Priority: optional
Architecture: any
Depends: sun-java6-jre
Suggests: flashplugin-nonfree, sun-java6-jdk
Installed-Size: 998755
Maintainer: Oleg Sivokon <>
Description: The software development kit for Adobe Flash and Adobe AIR
 This package contains utilities for compiling ActionScript 3 code,
 debugging Flash and AIR applications, documentation generation tools
 as well as a set of components for building applications that target
 Flash and AIR runtimes (aka Flex framework).

So, I have obvious questions:
Maintainer: - this is a mandatory field, but I'm not a maintainer of Flex
SDK :P at the very best I can be a maintainer of the deb package - so I'd
rather put something else into that field :)
Package: - well, I don't want to be a person that takes all responsibility
for giving names etc. So, suggestions welcome, also, it may make sense to
split the SDK into several packages.
Depends: - I'm not really sure of what are the actual requirements (I had
problems using SDK before with openJDK, but I'm not sure - maybe it should
work? Can I specify just any JRE as a dependency? What precise version? (I
think it used to work with Java 1.5 before). Has anyone tried it with IBM

Finally, since my English is what it is... a nicer description would be
also cool :)
