Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Apache Flex SDK Installer 2.0 RC1
Date Tue, 01 Jan 2013 09:29:17 GMT
The config is not part of the source.  There is only a reference to its url
in the installer app.   The installer was designed with this scenario in
mind.

A copy is included as a convenience to the developer who uses it.  In that
sense it is more like a .properties file.

We need to be able to change the sdk version without having to push an
update to the installer.  Bundling the config xml with the source or binary
will cause issues .

Thanks,
Om
