Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Flex 4.8.0 - RC3 - build number 1359417 (and Flex has been trademark signed off by Adobe for donation to Apache)
Date Fri, 13 Jul 2012 20:27:23 GMT
I'm giving my +1 (binding IPMC vote)

(1) I've checked the signatures and md5.

(2) I wanted to run the rat report from the src package but needed to change the build.xml:

$ diff build-save.xml build.xml
<         <antcall target="clean-temp" />
<         <unzip src="${basedir}/out/${source.kit}.zip" dest="${basedir}/temp"/>
>         <!--<antcall target="clean-temp" />
>         <unzip src="${basedir}/out/${source.kit}.zip" dest="${basedir}/temp"/>-->
<         <property name="rat.dir" value="${basedir}/temp"/>
>         <property name="rat.dir" value="${basedir}"/>

I don't think the rat report should be run against a package - it should be run against the
source tree directly.

The rat report then reports as expected.

(2) I wonder if the build can be simplified and not require as much manipulation of environment
variables. I'd like to see a helper script or App to setup the parameter file:

There are good examples for some of this, but I really am having trouble finding where Adobe
installed one components on my Mac.

So I cannot properly set env.FLASHPLAYER_DEBUGGER

(3) There were Java 1.4 vs. Java 5 warnings related to Batik and Velocity. It's optional,
but some effort ought to be made with the those projects to see about updating to the most
current versions and managing any remaining differences as overrides.


(4) A bunch of Messages from Extensions Manager:

     [exec] 2012-07-13 13:11:13.693 Adobe Extension Manager CS5[20292:903] *** __NSAutoreleaseNoPool():
Object 0xd91e20 of class NSCFString autoreleased with no pool in place - just leaking

Great work people!
