Subject Re: Apache Flex in Github
Date Mon, 20 Aug 2012 20:07:44 GMT
Right! We are looking for people with completly freedom since this would
make make things move forward in the project due to remove barriers and
allow contributions flow.

The fear that at sometime apache flex official project will be cloacked by
a more successful fork will always be possible. Right now is possible
forking the fork at github and evolving it in a radikal new way!. But for
that reason apache flex would grow better in contributors and play the king
role in an efficient way. People will always look to the better, and if a
fork is better will grab it instead of the official project. So we should
move the project in the right way and get people statisfied to work with
the official fork in order to create critical mass and have a compact and
joined community.

For that reason today open source, sharing and all around this is all about
git, github and the things we are talking about here
