Subject Re: Falcon compiler(.tests) building
Date Sun, 18 Nov 2012 18:10:40 GMT
I do see some warnings on the 'compiler' build:

"[javac] /Users/erik/Documents/ApacheFlex/svn/apacheFlex-falcon/compiler/build.xml:415:
warning: 'includeantruntime' was not set, defaulting to
build.sysclasspath=last; set to false for repeatable builds"

When I do a 'wipe' and build again, I see one specific warning (other
than a couple of the above):

"Warning: /Users/erik/Documents/ApacheFlex/svn/apacheFlex-sdk/ant/lib
does not exist."
