Edit Flex report to take recent INFRA-4380 news into account

-   We really need to get JIRA up and running.  I am hopeful that the
-   recent JIRA upgrade will make it possible to import the old Flex issues.
-   It has been suggested that we abandon the old issues and simply start
-   over, but I think there are a lot of deferred and open bugs that we
-   don't want to lose track of.  Knowing a larger set of related issues can
-   help guide folks in addressing issues.
-   I still would like Apache to consider a plan to have de-centralization of
-   server resources.  I understand that having more servers to maintain is
-   an extra cost to Infrastructure, but at the rate I see new projects being
-   proposed for incubation, it seems like a distributed model would scale
-   better.  Maybe new large projects like Flex need to come with a dowry of
-   a server and a donation to Apache.
-   I keep seeing issues arising from being so centralized.  The JIRA import is
-   just one issue.  I noted a discussion in general-incubator where a 
-   re-start of JIRA is on the order of several minutes.  Having more than one 
-   JIRA instance would allow Infra to pilot JIRA upgrades with only a subset
-   of Apache taking a risk.
-   Besides JIRA, it would allow SVN imports without having to take down all of
-   Apache.  We have seen the CI server run out of disk space.  That would be
-   less likely or impact less of Apache if there was more than one server.
