Subject Re: Have Adobe ever published a list of what they are giving to Apache?

Hey guys, even though I do appreciate the effort to spread the word
and secure Apache Flex social presence, I believe it should be handles
for someone designated by the community with the proper

Also, there is another thread on the mailing list that indicates we
are in violation of the Incubator publicity rule, no publicity is
allowed for Apache Flex for now, if I understand well.

Anyhow, when you create a Facebook page you have to make sure you do
it right and immediately secure the username for that page, otherwise
you will be promoting a product and the existence of a page to others
who will eventually secure the username and hijack your short URL (ir which will make you look like the unofficial
page and that other unauthorized page look like official, not good!!

That is exactly what I just did, except I did so to protected from being stolen. I created an Apache Flex
page on Facebook, secured the username (which secured the url and unpublished the page, which means no one
will see it for now but no one will be able to take ownership of the
short url neither).

As soon as the community is ready to create a Facebook page for Apache
Flex I will be work with the designated admin to transfer the page.

Also see the thread "Publicity - facebook or otherwise..." in the
current mailing list.
