Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Apache Flex SDK Installer 2.0 RC1
Date Tue, 01 Jan 2013 22:18:54 GMT
Wouldn't we want to keep the config file on our website / SVN?  It seems to
me that placing the config file on any of the DISTS would be disasterious,
as this contains the MD5 checksum that the app verifies to make sure the
release wasn't tampered by the dist...

What are the thoughts on doing versioning in the config XML?   have a
version 1 node, version 2 node, etc. so that the app would look for a
particular node, ignoring the rest of the config (so we can test future
versions, or support old versions without an issue).
