Quoting Omar Gonzalez <>:

A noise reply but, this is exactly what a flex-user/flex  
coders/stackoverflow/adobe forums would talk about.

To be honest, I am willing to put a huge amount of energy into  
committing and this project and I REALLY hope these discussions will  
sooner than later move to the appropriate forums/mailing lists.

I am hoping when a month or so goes by we as members could put to rest  
whether  these types of discussions are off topic or not for this  
particular mailing list. If they are not considered off topic, this  
could really be the source of a large amount of noise on this list.
