Subject [DISCUSS] InstallApacheFlex - RC8
Date Sat, 20 Oct 2012 15:07:53 GMT

Om, first: sorry for changing my mind ;-)

All, here are my thoughts: after careful reading of the VOTE thread I
see three ways to continue:

1. release
2. remove localisation from first release
3. fix localisation (and maybe other issues) before first release

I'm now changing my vote away from option 1 (however tempting) because
I sure that we'll never get a second chance for a first impression.
And first impressions are all that matter since we're trying to win
back confidence in Flex as a viable software creation tool.

I'm also not a big fan of 3. This would mean that we have to change
around some stuff, and test the changes etc. I think this is more work
that we'd do for a next release (in concert, maybe, with the next
release of the framework, as Alex suggested).

I would like to suggest that we go with option 2. This would (I think,
without looking at the code) require only the changing of one line of
code (setting the ONLY language option to en_US) and the setting of
one property (hiding the option ComboBox from view). Minimal changes
would allow us to cut RC8 really soon and get a new VOTE going...
