I assume an IP review would still be required, while the risk is low I think it’s still
a concern. How do we work out if someone has for instanced copied some GPL or other license
code in there? Looking at the code bases there about 50 different copyright owners in the
code (some variations of the same) including Adobe. The Adobe stuff may be MPL licensed? There's
also some MIT and possibly other licensed code in there.

> So, first we should discuss whether we want to adopt AS3Commons

Do we have anyone who is willing to be active maintainers of this code? (Or at least more
active than it is currently). Is any existing committer willing to put up a friendly notice
redirecting users and devs to it's new home? What committers are willing to clean up the code
base and integrate it into the SDK including looking into updating license and notice?
