The "May2012" page has been changed by AlexHarui:

  Signed off by mentor: rfrovarp
+ Flex
+ Apache Flex is an application framework for easily building Flash-based
+ applications for mobile devices, the browser and desktop.
+ Summary: A large community is losing momentum as it waits for Adobe to 
+ complete the source code transition and infrastructure.
+ Date of entry to the Incubator:  December 31, 2011
+ Top three items to resolve before graduation:
+   - Resolve trademark donation or licensing
+   - Complete code and bug database donation
+   - Make at least one release
+ Is there anything that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board specifically needs
+ to address?
+   The ASF legal team will have to agree to a custom Trademark licensing.
+   Adobe is still finalizing its proposal for the agreement.
+ Are there any legal, infrastructure, cross-project or personal issues that
+ need to be addressed? (Are there any stumbling blocks that impede the podling?)
+   Besides the trademark issue mentioned previously, the import of existing
+   JIRA bugs is blocked by an issue with Apache JIRA's import utility. It has
+   failed to import the data file supplied by Adobe. Infra has opened a support
+   ticket with Atlassian, but the problem remains unresolved two months later.
+ Check that the project's Incubation Status file up to date.
+ What has been done (releases, milestones, etc.) since the last report?
+   - The Flex compiler source code, including history, was imported into
+     the SVN repository.
+   - Additional localization resources have been donated.
+   - Carol Frampton is working to create a release candidate.  We expect
+     the initial RC's to be rejected as we finalize licensing and other
+     policy issues.
+ What are the plans and expectations for the next period?
+   Adobe expects to complete the transfer of the mustella test suite.
+   We hope to get an initial release approved by IPMC.
+ Are there any recommendations for how incubation could run more smoothly
+ for you?
+   Our mentors continue to be very helpful. 
+   We really need to get JIRA up and running.  I still would like the incubator
+   to consider separate servers for projects.  Having to set up external 
+   servers as an interim is a lot of work and adds confusion when you want 
+   to move to a final server or url later and you could have migration
+   issues if you didn't set up the server in a compatible way.
