Subject Re: Creating Working Groups [Was: Apache Flex suggestion - dumping SWF support in favor of HTML5 - listen to Steve]
Date Mon, 06 Feb 2012 21:07:21 GMT
Actually, I could put my code on Github and open a discussion on the ML but 
I do not think this is the best place because it would talk about very 
technical things on a particular sub-project, currently, the topics here are 
discussed in a more general way than what I want to be able to discussed, in 
more, for newcomers, it is a pain to find out a particular subject of 
interest, the wiki seems a good place to start and redirect the people, but 
where ?

IMO, there should be a dedicated space, if it is not here, it should at 
least be a place not spread as you suggested (that is to say, personal blog 
+ repository), but centralized, can be Spoon could bring a solution ?  I 
don't know, why not, I am registered since the beginning but nothing has yet 
been proposed publicly in that direction AFAIK.

  I just wanted to address these two statements, at least from my point
of view.

To Jude, You can certainly do things.  IT may be a bit harder for you
[than a committer] to get it back into the SVN Repostiroy; but you can
get the code and start doing your own development with it somehow.

To Frederic,

   What do you want started?  And why can't you start?

  As far as I understand it; the only limitation on non-committers is
that you can't submit your code back into the Apache SVN repository.
You can still circulate it through other means (You're own blog, GitHub,
or Google Code or whatever you want).

  In terms of committers, we all have other responsibilities.  I expect
"Flex Next" development will be a slow and steady thing, not a huge
immediate stream of new features or changes.
