To be clear, I would like there to be two mailing lists someday.  Flex-dev
which is what you are using now to discuss how to modify the framework and
other assets in the project (logos), and flex-user for folks who are using
the framework and have questions.  This seems to be the successful pattern
used by other Apache projects.

Anyone is welcome to create their own discussion forum or channel and the
one at StackOverflow and FlexCoders will continue on.  And I believe they
can call their forum or channel anything they want as long as they don't use
Apache in the name.

Do they need links from the Apache Flex page?  I would say no, Stackoverflow
has done just fine without any references from Adobe.  A good community will
make noise and get heard via other methods.
