Note: I gave you a quick answer, like that you can have a good overview of 
the process but more precise details will be given by our PMCs probably 
later today.

Hi Jérémy,

First, thank you for your interest donating those components to Apache Flex.

1- The components:

Given we've got progress component and we haven't got any dual slider (Spark
& Mobile) and yours looks very nice, I would personaly go at least for the
latter, but I'm not only by myself and I not sure about the policies we've
got regarding how we choose the components they could be donated.

2- For the license, it depends, from what I've seen from now (most of that
was writen before by Alex Harui for other donations):

The ASF has a policy to not take software regardless of the license unless
the copyright holder grants it.
By signing the ICLA you have indicated that you have permission from the
copyright holder to make any contributions that you make.

I think steps are to file ICLAs [1], and a CCLA [2] if there is a corporate
entity involved.  Then fill out the software grant [3].

3- The donation process:

1. You fill out and sign all legal documents
2. Some of us will review the code (it can be given via a zip associated to
a JIRA ticket).  If it looks ok, we will start the committer approval
process for you.  Takes a minimum of 3 business days.
3. We discuss where this code should land, the package names.
4. Once the software grant is recorded, someone can check the code into SVN.
5. Once it is in, it gets another review.  This means making sure there are
no binaries, that the headers are correct, that your copyrights (but not any
third-party copyrights) are moved to the NOTICES file (which must be done by
you or with your explicit permission).
6. Based on 3, all kinds of good stuff happens.

I’m Jérémy Reynaud, CTO and co-founder of KeepCore, company based in
Montpellier, France.

We propose commercial FLEX components on our dedicated website:

We recently think about releasing some of them on the website for free.

But maybe another and better solution could be to donate them to the Apache
FLEX community.

So here are my questions:

- Does it make sense? Do you think these components are interesting for the

- If yes, what is the process to donate them?

The components are:

- A dual slider (Spark & Mobile), demo:

- A progress spinner / “super” busy indicator (Spark & Mobile), demo:

Thanks for your answers.

Best regards,
