Subject Re: Do we want Abandoned Code?
Date Thu, 30 May 2013 19:12:42 GMT
If there was any interest at all, I'm sure it would be easy to migrate the
flexlib code. There are a handful of contributors (me being one of the
largest), and I'm sure assuming we still have good email addresses for
everyone they'd all sign whatever is needed.

Note that flexlib is nearly all Flex 3 components. There was work done to
get them working with the 4.x framework, but I don't think any spark stuff
was ever really created fresh, although I could be wrong. I haven't been
paying attention to the project for years. So maybe since it's all
non-Spark components y'all wouldn't want it anyway.

It's on github these days: https://github.com/flex-users/flexlib but the
last commit was nearly a year ago. You won't find any interest from the
original creators of the project, and the only person who seems to have
been maintaining the project any more is Julien Nicoulaud (
https://github.com/nicoulaj).
