As an incubation mentor I have previously suggested that creating a
first release as soon as possible would be a good thing in terms of
"training" this team with the Apache release process.

I still think that's a good idea, and I assume we wouldn't make much
noise about such a release. We can call it a "subset release" or
whatever's suitable, its just a good step towards making a first
"real" release that Flex users find really useful compared to the
current Adobe Flex release.

If you're frustrated about the full code donation taking too much
time, that's a totally different topic IMO. If the code had been fully
donated already, I would still recommend releasing it as soon as
possible, but for users having a release that doesn't bring any new
features is not really useful anyway, so that wouldn't change this
situation.
