> Subject: [DRAFT] Apache Flex Podling Incubator Status Report (February 2012)
> Below is my proposal for the status report for review and comment.
> -----------------------
> Project Name:  Apache Flex
> Summary: A highly energetic community waits for Adobe to transition code and
> infrastructure.
> Date of entry to the Incubator:  December 31, 2011
> Top four items to resolve before graduation:
> 1. Resolve trademark donation or licensing
> 2. Complete code and bug database donation
> 3. Make at least one release
> 4. Add new committers
> Is there anything that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board specifically needs to
> address?
> The ASF legal team will have to work with Adobe on the Trademark licensing
> issue.  Adobe legal is still drafting the proposal before presenting to
> Apache.
> 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 code donation and bug
> database donation are being slowed by infrastructure issues at both Adobe
> and Apache, mainly the lack of ways to easily transfer multi-GB files.
> Check that the project's Incubation Status file up to date. (Also provide
> the URL.)
> What has been done (releases, milestones, etc.) since the last report?
> An initial set of Flex source (minus Subversion history) was checked into
> the whiteboard area of the podling¹s Subversion repository.
> A logo contest was held.  Over 50 entries were submitted.
> The mailing lists were established.  Over 200 people joined in the first 30
> days and the traffic averaged over 100 emails a day.  It has quieted down
> now that the logo contest has concluded.
> What are the plans and expectations for the next period?
> Adobe expects to complete the transfer of the bug database and the initial
> set of code with history.  Adobe also hopes to contribute the compiler and
> test suite as well.  And there is hope for an initial release.
> Are there any recommendations for how incubation could run more smoothly for
> you?
> Incubation has been working well.  Our mentors are great.
