It has nothing to do with "the Apache way" and everything to do with the
amount of time it takes to import large dumps of SVN history. We are not
committing to trunk until all of Adobe's code is contributed to diminish
the possibilities of the SVN import failing because of conflicts or any
other problems that may arise. We do not have access to importing SVN
history, this has to go through Apache Infrastructure, and so we hope to
minimize the amount of back and forth that we have to do with Apache Infra
by not committing things to trunk that could potentially cause issues. The
safest way is to just not commit things there and use the patches branch
that we currently have things that have been put into it.

Because Mustella is still under review, and hopefully in the repository
soon. Without Mustella we have no way of testing changes that are done and
integrating new components. Before any new components are added we want to
make a release that is identical to the donation from Adobe and as close to
Flex 4.6 as it possibly can be so we can a.) learn the deployment process
and b.) graduate from the incubator.
