Subject Re: [VOTE] Release InstallApacheFlex 1.0 - RC7
Date Fri, 19 Oct 2012 08:56:27 GMT
Sorry about this, but why would you release the installer in it's current
state? I know there is a lot of "pressure" and excitement to get this
released, but there are currently clearly some bigger issues with the
proposed RC in terms of translations.

IMO it's better to delay the release until the most serious issues are
fixed than to release now, knowing that it will cause problems for (perhaps
a minor part of ) the users.

I'm not trying to be negative. I'm just worried that this will lead to
frustration and a feeling of low quality coming from Apache Flex to the
users.

kind regards,
Christophe
