Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-35) Removing dependency to a contrib library in the MXML download/build script
Date Fri, 20 Apr 2012 15:58:40 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-35?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13258338#comment-13258338

Carol Frampton commented on FLEX-35:
------------------------------------

As much as I'd like to leave this dependency I also saw many people struggling with it (it
would of course help to read the README).  I have a feeling mustella also has a dependency
on this so just fixing this file may not remove the dependency for long.  At a min, or at
least in the short-term, a better error message would be nice.

> the modules/downloads.xml Ant build script is relying on a contrib library for performing
some trivial tasks. I suggest removing this dependency because less dependencies is better
then more dependencies :) It complicates somewhat the build process (users are requested to
download and set up a contrib library, which is nor automatic neither straight-forward.
