+## DRAFT timeline of Apache Flex
+
+The goal of this page is to document the history of Apache Flex, since Adobe decided to donate
it to
+the Apache Software Foundation (ASF).
+
+It might be useful for other similar projects, or any incubating project, as an example of
what's needed to 
+incubate at Apache. 
+
+See http://incubator.apache.org for the official Incubator documentation.
+
+##December 12th, 2011: Flex Summit

+
+##December 22nd, vote for Anne and Dave as incubator PMC members
+Project mentors need to be members of the Incubator PMC, ASF members just need to ask to
