Thank you for your feedback.  Always good to get an community opinion with an outside perspective.

I just have to say as a new member here looking to possibly get involved,
that all of this back and forth arguing over the release process and all
the terror of the legality of changing things really makes for a terrible
first impression. I'm pretty discouraged about any participation. Between
the bickering, nobody noticed a frustrated subscriber demanding to be taken
off the dev list. (spare one person helping him do so)

So yeah, basically here is my first impression of being involved in flex.
Quite a few people really dislike the release manager, people are terrified
of the legal implications of mistakes (which makes me terrified to touch
and use the source) and many of the leads here seem to double as adobe
employees... which makes me feel that this is still very heavily controlled
and owned by adobe for their own corporate interests.

So there's my first impression. I'm not claiming these are facts, they're
an impression. Just thought you guys would care for the insight into how
your community is developing around this project and why at least 2 people
are looking at running away from the mailing list today.
