Well, if I could design it to behave like that, I probable wouldn't
have to work for a living anymore ;-) I'll still thinking it might be
a localized thing, a proxy somewhere that got primed by the browser
download, but I'm no expert on ant or any such matters.

Another -1. I'm getting Flashbacks. Maybe we're going about this in
the wrong way? Maybe we should ask the community to test the release
first, before calling the VOTE. Wait... didn't we do that? While I
appreciate all the feedback we're getting, I really was hoping that
the project would rally and help us out a bit after the debacle of the
first VOTE.

The file name "README" is in an IndexIgnore directive of the
mod_autoindex config. The change in capitalisation bypasses this.

I guess you are referring to the 2 textual instances of these 'typos'
in the README? I've fixed those in SVN, renamed them to "Adobe Flash
Player playerglobal.swc'. Do we need to rebuild, repackage, re-sign
and re-vote for this?

Om's key and mine are in https://people.apache.org/keys/group/flex.asc

I'm not an ant man myself, I'll leave these to more knowledgeable folks.
