Well, my idea is that 4.6.x numbers would be reserved for Adobe to make any
updates it has to, like if they find security holes that need patching.

The 4.7.x numbers would be for Flex SDK updates we do immediately, that are
hopefully mostly bug fixes to the 4.6 code that got donated and is now
Apache Flex.

Any updates, changes, additions that we do to Flex that are more than just
bug fixes and that introduce API breaks would then have to get pushed to
the next major version, which would be Flex 5.x.x.

That was my proposal. I'm not much in favor of years, but I can't really
come up with a good reason other than having Apache Flex 4.7, and Apache
Flex 5 implies a sort of stability that an enterprise framework needs.
