Subject Re: I give up (was [VOTE] Release InstallApacheFlex 1.0 - RC6)
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2012 07:03:48 GMT
I'm frustrated too, but remember, my vote isn't holding up the release
per-se.  I cannot veto the release.  If enough of you want to vote to ship
it with these mistakes I cannot prevent that.

However, I personally don't like obvious spelling and grammatical errors.
It just makes us look bad.  I'm sorry I didn't scrutinize the change list
for the SWFObject change before, but also, I miss lots of things when
scanning diffs.  My main focus has been on trying to get every mustella test
to pass.  Maybe I should have prioritized the Installer more than I did.
