The directory in question is

AIRInstallBadge.as - this is a Adobe AIR sample program that has an Adobe
AIR SDK license which allows modification but I'm not sure Apache will
allow this license in their src
AIRInstallBadge.fla - this is a input file to Adobe Flash Professional but
it is is not in a readable form - I would consider this source but I'm not
sure Apache does
AIRInstallBadge.swf - I presume this was built from some combination of
the .fla and .as files but I'm not sure how and most likely requires Flash
expressinstall.swf - this has an Adobe license but it is downloadable and
the SDK is already doing that
swfobject.js - this has a compatible license and it is downloadable and
the SDK is already doing that
