As I mentioned in the users@flex.apache.org list, that's a great idea, I've
actually been thinking of doing one in the new year. I still have some contacts
at Wrox/Wiley from when we did the Professional Adobe Flex 3 "phone book", and
at one point O'Reilly was bugging me to do a Flex 4 book back in 2009 (but I
turned them down saying I'll wait for Flex 5, and you can guess how that turned
out... LOL)

So yeah, I think it may be time for an "Apache Flex Cookbook", so I'll see if I
can bend O'Reilly's ear to the idea and set that up. If O'Reilly doesn't go for
it, I am sure I can get Wrox to agree to a "Professional Apache Flex" book.

What's the protocol here from Apache's end? I've never written a book on an
apache product before, only Adobe products. (FYI, I've lead the team which wrote
Professional Adobe Flex 3 -- and wrote 1/6 of 1400 pages; tech edited a few AS3
O'Reilly & Peachpit books; contributed to few Friends of Ed books back in the day.)

Does anyone on the Apache Flex team mind if I were to write the O'Reilly "Apache
Flex Cookbook," (assuming O'Reilly accepts the proposal)? I would of course
welcome feedback from the dev team, and extensive "beta testing" will be done
prior to publication to ensure ZERO errors prior to -- but I'm getting ahead of
myself. Thanks.
