Subject Re: [POLL] Maven and Apache Flex
Date Fri, 30 Nov 2012 00:49:33 GMT
Personally I don't see any way I can support being forced to develop this in private. Apache
doesn't work that way. I suppose if that's the only choice they give us and Chris is willing
to do it on his own he can submit it to us as a patch but there's no guarantee it will be
accepted. For myself I'd prefer to manually download the artifacts than to accept an agreement
like that. 

At this point I don't guess I would veto a commit if this is what it comes to but this is
a horrible way to develop a plugin that is essential to many Flex users. It should be developed
in the open in a way that addresses everybody's needs including Adobe's and the community's.
This is a slap in the face to the Apache Way.
