I made sure I didn't use any code from anywhere except my head on this  
first iteration. I also used some of my experience when I made an as3  
code creator framework a couple years ago.

I didn't want to use any Jangaroo code until you have official  
approval and forms that Alex mentioned submitted. I think the form  
from your employer would probably be very important.

What will have to be figured out eventually that I am not sure about  
is project setup, threading(since falcon is multithreaded) and write  
optimizations but, this is the great thing about opensource. People  
with different levels of experience can contribute!

I will look into this, thanks!

Like I said, I think Alex was correct that you just need to make sure  
your legally clear from your employer and have forms submitted if you  
use code from janagroo in places.

Other than that, I would love as much help as possible, you put enough  
effort in, you will be an apache flex committer in no time. :)

So I will try and get the code looking decent, licenses and stuff and  
just get it into my whiteboard and not worry about it. I think I have  
enough support here, that we can mold it into the shape it needs to be.
