Subject Re: [FlexJS] Designers needed for default theme

Hi Mahmoud,

Let me see if I understand:

Was Flat-UI written by some other group of people, maybe a group called
DesignModo, and you are not affiliated with them?

Did you just write new source code to implement their visuals?

Does your source code have dependencies on BootStrap?

Is your code written in ActionScript, JavaScript or both?

IMO, it would be better to not donate new components that might have a
complicated history.  You can probably donate or re-create those later
with a much simpler process.
