Subject Re: Moonshine-IDE.com -- FlexJS, Flex, and ActionScript focused open source IDE -- contribution to Apache FlexJS ?

Justin,

Thanks. Could you look at this installation guide
<https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/FLEX/Setting+up+the+Radii8+Development+Environment>
and tell me if we can get things fully setup at Apache? I don't want to
start down the path of donation to have certain libraries become an issue
later on. Here's my attributions list
<https://github.com/monkeypunch3/Radii8/blob/master/Radii8LibraryAssets/src/assets/data/attributions.xml>and
license for most if not all of the libraries.
