Subject Re: [ROADMAP] Apache Flex Steering Survey
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2012 15:15:05 GMT
The survey/roadmap are definitely in line with your guidance and will 
likely be called "Community Objectives and Priorities for Apache Flex" 
and would be posted on the Spoon website. Although it cannot be binding 
it does act as:
1) An expression of the community and their collective input to what 
should be a objective/priority in the next 6 months (4.9/5.0 ?)
2) Feedback on the priorities of effort from Adobe (there was mention of 
a 'delivery schedule', it would be good to expose that) as some elements 
like Gravity may be of no interest and therefore not worth expending 
limited resourses);
3) a vehicle to engage people in the project.

  - in the short term people who want to work on things can use it
