Subject Re: [MENTOR] InstallApacheFlex AIR app related questions

You asked somewhere how you sign your app in the Apache way.  The process
is somewhat documented here [1].

The rough steps you need to follow are:

1)  Create a key.
2)  Make sure the public part of your key is on one of the public servers.
3)  Add your key to
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/flex/trunk/KEYS.
4)  Ideally your key would be signed by others so it is linked into the
Apache web of trust.  Mine is not.
5)  Use the script sign_and_hash.sh which I just added to a new build
subdirectory to sign your artifacts.
Read the header of the scripts for instructions.  You will need your
private key.

Or, when you're ready, I can sign it.
