When I was talking about an "AIR help application" I meant this:
http://www.adobe.com/support/chc/ (CHC). I didn't mean it may be donated
because it is more of the Creative Suite thing then anything specific to
Flex.

I was asking these questions rather because: Flex help is used by other
applications (like CHC, but not only), and those applications aren't under
Apache control. These applications may expect certain format, or maybe even
certain process of documentation generation. If we are going to make
changes to ASDocs templates, for example, should we consider other use
cases, which aren't part of the SDK project? What if in the future plan we
would like to [this is theoretical, but again, not impossible] move to
using NaturalDocs instead of ASCocs, will it be OK, given and it's
technically possible for the existing SDK code. What if we saw HaXe port as
a viable alternative - patching ASDocs to work with HaXe may be in fact
more time consuming than generating documentation using other tools...

Finally, no help is distributed with SDK today. I mean, of course there is
documentation in the source code and it is available as code hinting by
using "fat swcs", but there's no separate body of documentation (although,
there is ASDocs target in the framework builds). So, what will be the
destiny of the ASDocs target? Is Apache Flex going to provide Flex language
reference as a separate download?

Best.
