Here's my second draft. It's now intended to be sent directly to all committers.

--- start draft ---
Hi Apache Flex Committer,

A lot has been going on in Apache Flex in recent months and it's been hard to keep up to date
with all of the news.

Here's a brief overview of the current state of the project and milestones since becoming
a top level project.
- We're released 5 versions of the Flex SDK under Apache.
- Work have progressed on FlexJS to a point we are nearing an alpha release
- We're attracted more committers and PMC members to the project
- There's been 30,000 installs of the Flex SDK over the last 7 months
- 4.12 had 1,500 install in the first week after it's release
- 4.11 had 15,000 installs
- 4.10 had 11,000 installs
- The SDK has had significant speed and memory performance improvements since the 4.8 release
- 450 JIRA  bugs have been resolved since the 4.8 release
- The flex.apage.org website has had over 1,000,000 page views and 450,000 visitors
- Serval PMC members will be giving talks at Apache Con in Denver
- The 360|Flex conference is back on this year
- There will be a new release of FlexUnit in the near future

We know you are busy and may not have the time to help out the project and that's fine.
But if you do have a little spare time on your hands and want to become a little more involved
in contributing to Apache Flex there's several areas where we are looking for help.
- More issues are being submitted by users in JIRA and need attention
- We still have outstanding bugs from when Adobe donated the SDK
- We need to update support for modern mobile OS versions, work is underway on this
- We need more examples for the community showcase
- We need people to help localise the installer and SDK into other locales

If you can help out with any of these tasks or in any other way it would be much appreciated.

Apache Flex PMC Team

The intention is to inform people who may be out of the loop and encourage them (if they have
the free time and the inclination) to help out.

Jeffry if you're still against this and there's no word changes that make it acceptable to
you I'll give up and move onto something else.
