      Description

      Hi,

      Apache flex is not really distribution friendly particularly for debian (I plan to package it).
      1. You use a monolithic build tree. It means that we should take a take it all approach. It slow down the packaging work and render review (by legal team) slow. Could be possible to have a modularized approach ? I means that every jar in lib/ has it own package and we could compile independantly, and does not need to source include them. I am mainly interested on mxmlc not debugger.
      2. Could be possible then to do not use and even get source needing air/ Adobe Flash Player Content Debugger (it seems possible I compiled mxmlc without it) ? It is not free and not suitable for distro.
      3. Could be possible to use your packaged saxon/xerces/javacc/battikk and so on. If not could you document why and include patch from upstream (as a distro we could include it on your package).
      4. Could be possible to use joola for playerglobal [1] see also tamarin project [2]

      Thank you very much
