Subject Re: [DRAFT] Apache Flex June 2014 Report
Date Thu, 05 Jun 2014 21:48:36 GMT
Well, I’m open to suggestions. I could invite other folks to the repository to see what we’re
doing. I could also make it public. I could also port the code over to the main Apache git

I’m kind of hesitant to do the last option right now, because I can’t really afford the
time it would take me to do that right now… It’s going to be quite a bit of work merging
the code back.
