Several Apache documents state that there are binary distributions provided
as a convenience.  Do they go through a different process?

A FLA file is a source project for Flash Professional.  If you are a user of
Flash Professional and want to use it to create components for Flex, you can
start with some plug-ins that involve this file.  In general, how does a
project that allows for integration from other paid-for proprietary projects
provide sample projects or other integration files?

The person who will sign for Adobe is ready to sign, but because Adobe is
off this week, it isn't clear that I will get the signed document this week.

We will make the other adjustments and produce another candidate.
