It might be ok to start after waiting for some feedback. Weekends are a
little slower, and more so in the US here since it's a holiday weekend.

I bet after it's up and running you will start getting progressively more
apps to be added.  Might even need a way to organize them or search through
them at some point down the road.

Some random thoughts from me.

-Site address something simple like... flex.apache.org/showcase
-I don't think we should replace the desktop/mobile images, but I think
those two could be combined, since they lead to the same features page.  We
could however add in a showcase tile on it's own.
-I like the idea of tiling each app like we have done several places in the
-We probably don't want the date of submission visible.  I wouldn't want
sometime down the road if we haven't updated it in a while for it all look
old by perception with the dates.

-I like the idea of the showcase app / tour de flex add on.  Not sure what
we are allowed to have in the way of data being submitted back to the
website however.
