Hmm.  I still don't like the first line.  The "it's been hardŠ" assumes
that folks think it has been hard. Also, please propose a subject as well.
 Maybe "Apache Flex Progress Report"?

How about for the first two lines:
A lot has been going on in Apache Flex in recent months.  In case you
haven't been following on the dev list,  Here's a brief overview of the
current state of the project and milestones since becoming a top level

And I would add to the list of areas where we are looking for help:
-We need folks to help develop and test the FlexJS and Falcon code bases.
