Subject [jira] [Commented] (FLEX-33208) Notify user of non-Apache files included in the SDK installation and ask for approval
Date Tue, 25 Sep 2012 14:30:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX-33208?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13462784#comment-13462784

Erik de Bruin commented on FLEX-33208:
--------------------------------------

Yes, sort of, for some of the files. Those screens don't explain that the AIR SKD, globalplayer.swc
and swfobject.js are also downloaded.

> From Bertrand :
> IIUC the installer downloads a number of files (listed
> in installer/src/sdk-installer-config.xml) and installs them on the user's
> system.
> Does it make the user aware that that's happening? IMO there should be a
> confirmation somewhere, where the user is given the option of either
> a) Reviewing the list of files that are going to be downloaded, and
> accepting or rejecting the whole thing
> b) Say "I don't care, go ahead".
> My concern is that in terms of quality and security, we don't want Apache
> software to mess with people's systems without letting them know beforehand.
