Subject Re: I give up (was [VOTE] Release InstallApacheFlex 1.0 - RC6)
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2012 07:24:14 GMT
I agree that seems like very few people want to see this get released.
Otherwise we would have had more votes.

No software is perfect.  The longer we scrutinize this the more problems we
will dig out, which frankly are getting trivial and trivial.  We need to
come together and say that this is sufficient for a release and ship it
out.  There is always going to be a "next" release where we can fix
issues.  That is the nature of shipping software.

Thanks,
Om
