I totally agree! And to me it was very important that you said that! I 
had a completely different picture in my mind before that.

This is where i could see Spoon jump in. They already want to handle the 
community groups. So why not draw a clear line here:
Apache Flex handles the current source code: Input is gathered via Jira 
from a bunch of external madness that runs in <insert community 
here>(managed by Spoon) where developers can find mentoring in the sense 
of: "Your idea is 
awesome/out-of-date/inappropriate/duplicate/not-in-shape-yet" and "We 
help you find a-fruitful-path/friends/help/a-good-style". Like a global 
"pre-submit" arena that works as a community.

Why would I use the whiteboard as a commiter? Isn't it bad for 
sharing/collaborating with non-commiters?

In short: I would love to have a good place where I could talk about 
ideas related to the flex sdk and have my code also posted - 
collaborate. For that I would need something that is good at this ... 
like github. With another "management central" somewhere that knows what 
is roughly going on. sounds better for that than Apache.
