I think it's true that Apache does not accept targeted donations.
That's where an org like Spoon could help - targeting material and
monetary contributions related to the Flex project. Of course, since
it's a separate org we will have to work out the details about use of
the marks, etc. It's not something I want to get into right now
because I don't know enough to have a coherent discussion about it :-)
