Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-33150) Progamatically verify the MD5 hash of the downloaded Apache Flex SDK
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2012 11:53:02 GMT


Erik de Bruin commented on FLEX-33150:

I've updated my contribution.

Note: this solution is now part of my 'mega-patch', attached to FLEX-33106. I have removed
all my other patches. I was getting my patches crossed, and as the Ghostbusters noted: "Don't
cross the patches… It would be bad… Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously
and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light." ;-)
