== Coding guidelines ==
* Be sensible
* Be tolerant
== Dependencies and targets ==
* We target Flash Player 10.
* Potlatch 2 requires Flex; the Halcyon rendering component doesn't. Don't add Flex stuff (import mx.*) to anything in net.systemeD.halcyon.
* Both Potlatch 2 and Halcyon can be deployed locally (i.e. not on, and indeed can talk to databases other than the main OSM instance. So don't be too OSM-specific

useFourSpaceIndents = true;
== MXML ==

* Way icons for map_features are 75x45 and have up to now generally been drawn by Richard (see
* All features must have a unique icon, and all icons must be in the correct style. Do not add a feature without a matching icon.
* Only deployable files go in resources/ . Vector source files go in resources_src/
== babelFx ==
* Currently using forked version from
