Subject Re: Say "Hi" to 5 (!) new Apache Flex Committers
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2012 23:18:57 GMT

Thank's all to welcome me on board, I'm very happy to have been asked to 
become a committer (even though before I commit anything I still  will want 
someone to review my code...).

Two things are touching me at the moment, I would define it like that:

1- As a noob in SDK developement, I would like to have a tool, let's say 
like a "Apache Flex SDK Developer tool suite" that install and set 
everything for me, helps me to build the SDK, run the tests, etc..., like 
that I can concentrate myself, at least at the begining in bugs  fixing.
(I don't want to have to read the readme.txt, install the third parties, 
learn ant, look for the good targets, read the mustella readme.txt and so 

2- As software architect, I want a total "out of the box" mavenized SDK 
because it's the way every big company works with the languages, librairies, 
... and I'm asked to provide that.

For these first two wishes, I'm gonna try to make them reality because it's 
what I needed when I started with this new Apache Flex SDK and that's what 
that was missing, we started already with the mavenizer but it's just a 
start, if you, folks, you can feel as well that the new contributors have 
the same needs and you want to invest your time in someof these wishes, I'll 
be more than happy to work with you.

And obviously, that's all on my spare time, so, don't thing it's gonna 
happen in few days.
In the meantime, I'll try to do my committer job: fixing bugs, review 
patches... and especially learn.

Let's all join in welcoming our 5 new committers:

Carlos Rovira (carlosrovira)
Christofer Dutz (cdutz)
Cyrill Zadra (czadra)
Frederic Thomas (fthomas)
Jose Barragan (josebarragan)

These folks have been instrumental in giving the project the momentum
it needed to graduate (soon, I'm sure) and from their communications I
understand that they all have lots of ideas they're just waiting to
bring to the project.

A big thank you and warm welcome to all of them!
