Subject Re: updating ApacheFlexSDK URL in Om's installer
Date Thu, 26 Jul 2012 02:53:04 GMT
Erik,

This is the closest we have come in terms of a solution to this problem
:-)  Lets try to figure out a way to implement and test this.

If you don't mind, can you please post this approach on
infrastructure-dev@apache.org and see if there are any objections?

Nick, do you think you can implement this on the server?  The steps seem to
be relatively straightforward.   If needed, I can try to get access and try
it out.

Thanks,
Om
