I've been holding back getting into this discussion but to be frank I feel
the same - I know Spoon will be playing by the Apache rules and won't do
anything intentionally to hurt the community. There is something about the
semi-open approach and a limited group of people driving the agenda that I
find a bit worrying.

Would it be possible to have Spoon use Apache infrastructure like a section
on the wiki for example to document what is going on and let people

I'm a bit worried Spoon would become synonymous with Apache Flex for the
wider community. There are some high profile Flex developers that will no
doubt make incredibly valuable contributions but would not like to see them
becoming the de facto decision makers.

Spoon is probably also getting settled in and getting used to the new
situation of Flex at Apache so don't want to hold this against them, just
make sure the relationship is clear for everyone involved.
