Subject Re: Proposal for contributing code from GraniteDS
Date Tue, 13 Nov 2012 19:17:18 GMT
That's a 86 AS source files and 4 xml files piece of code (dont' ask me the
number of lines). I don't know if it's a "lot of code" or no...

There is no copyright issue about this code (we are the owners and there is
no external contribution) and there is no dependencies on code outside of
the Flex framework.

Franck.
