I'm not sure off the top of my head, but I do know in the past, I have had
the need for customizing BlazeDS and had to monkey patch the rpc
components. I believe those customizations are even still in use. One small
example is how the rpc framework is poor at communicating some information
about reconnecting status.

In regards to ideas, I would reach out to those I already know use BlazeDS
and round up a much community I could to get their feedback.

This it's my only hesitation to spin BlazeDS into it's own project. But my
concern with leaving remain with the Apache Flex project is branding and
release management.

I think if we can build a community for BlazeDS (which I believe there is
already a silent one, and silent only because contributions to Adobe was
poor at best) then the separate protect could thrive - of course not as
lively as this group, but good enough to survive.

I'm still unclear how to address rpc.swc. maybe it would be good to move it
over and make it completely part of the server-side umbrella, but my
concern there would be that it would miss a good set of talented committers
from here. So I think it's better suited to stay in the Apache Flex protect
for that reason.

Last thing on this note, if we do bring BlazeDS into Apache Flex, how will
release management take place, and how will the product remain to be its
own within another product? Especially since its an a optional server-side
technology where there are others to choose from?

I would think so. And that would be awesome to see contributions from LCDS!
