Subject Re: [DISCUSS} Fork FlexJS from Apache Flex
Date Tue, 29 Aug 2017 11:14:28 GMT
I've already replied via nabble a few hours ago but it seems that it is not synced with the
list for whatever reason... so sorry for annoying you:

Hi Alex, 
thanks for this summary, I think this is the right way to go! 

But for me, it sounds a little bit, that Apache Flex is labeled as discontinued. 
We should take care to not scare off or unsettle Apache Flex users. 
Even if FlashPlayer is dead, Flex with AIR is still an awesome platform! 
Maybe the usage of AIR could save some Flex apps a for while or give users some more time
to migrate to FlexJS. 

> Most FlexJS PMC members are planning to remain on the Apache Flex PMC 
I think it would be good to also list the Apache Flex PMC members 

>I will be stepping down as Apache Flex chair 
Probably I've overlooked something but who will be the chair of Apache Flex? 

>It isn't clear how much longer Adobe will pay Peter and I to work on Flex 
and/or FlexJS. 

I would like to use the opportunity to mention that my company is only willing to invest time
in FlexJS if Adobe will continue its support. 
So I hope that there will be a commitment by Adobe. The fork would be a good opportunity for
to express oneself.
