Nick,

Thank you SO much for doing this!!

I realized about an hour after I copied the files up that I forgot to
rename README to README.txt so that it would show on the website.  It's
renamed in the staging area
(/www/www.apache.org/dist/incubator/flex/4.8.0-incubating/README.txt) but
it doesn't look like it got copied.  If you can get that page visible I
think we should add a link for it under each of the RELEASE_NOTE links in
the source and binary sections.  I'm sure we will update the RELEASE_NOTES
in the coming days so I'd like to know if we need to do anything special
when we change one of files (we aren't allowed to change the artifacts for
obvious reasons).

I'm worried that people are just going to zero in on the binary section
and think they can unzip and away they go.  I think we need to add a
sentence to the binary section that minimally has a link to the
Dependencies section (or I'm open to suggestions).

If we leave the Dependencies section as is, for the optional components,
you need to make it clear that you need every one of those jars, except
flex-messaging to enable embedded font support, and you need
flex-messaging to enable BlazeDS.  We should also add to the release notes
that if you try to use BlazeDS and you don't have that jar it blows up in
a rather ungraceful fashion (I can do this).

Can we put "Please review the release notes before installing or compiling
the SDK." in that awful yellow green color you have below or perhaps a
nicer color :)

Carol
