Subject Re: Suggestion : Adopt a package manager like Ruby Gems for Flex as a first class citizen of the SDK
Date Tue, 10 Jul 2012 14:29:26 GMT
If it's a package manager you wouldn't have to use it. Gems are really very
useful for pulling in community goodies and it's one of the reasons ruby is
so productive. I dont  know of a counterpart in flex,  pulling stuff via
git is more cumbersome.
