I agree with Chris that is great to hear this feedback.

Roadmaps, schedules, priorities are just plain difficult in a
volunteer-driven project.  As you can see from several responses, folks
just run out of time.  IMO, the one thing I think will help us most is
getting some FlexJS apps into production.  That's why Harbs and Yishay
often get quicker responses from me.  If anybody else can get going on
trying to get a FlexJS app into production, they will also get priority on
my list.  Yes, it is a rough and bumpy road right now, but on the other
hand, you will hopefully get better response time from the other
committers on your issues, which is sort of like free engineering

It is true as Piotr pointed out that it is hard for me to see where the
holes are since I am under-the-hood so much.  I know there is agreement
that documentation is lacking, but I am still not clear on what words we
could write and where we could publish them that would make the biggest
difference.  There is no way we can quickly replace the entire body of
written information about Flex, so I think we need to find the highest
value information and figure out how best to publish it.  So I would
appreciate continued discussion on that.  For those of you who responded
on this thread and have time, it would help me if you can add the next
level of detail by filling in the template "such as ...., that would be
solved by .....", or "such as ...., but when using the Flex SDK I get
unstuck by ....."

In other words:  "I tried to do something advanced, such as ..., but got
stuck, and that would be solved by ..." or
"I tried to do something advanced, such as ..., but got stuck, but when
using the Flex SDK I get unstuck by  ..."

One more thing:  The community also could use at least one more
independent consultant who understand FlexJS.  I've been asked twice to
sit down with a company considering FlexJS and help them estimate what the
porting effort would be.  I can't do that without a lot of hassle due to
employee agreement restrictions.  Those companies have subsequently
decided not to go with FlexJS because there isn't someone they can bring
in to guide them through the process.
