Subject Re: Apache Flex in Github

If I mayĆ 

1. Have Apache Git be the origin for Apache Flex (including branches that
are official).
2. Use GitHub to mirror and for additional work and features. This lets
the community do as the please to explore and modify, test, enhance, etc.
3. Committers perform the integration from GitHub to the develop and
release branches on Apache Git once the changes have been validated and/or
voted on.

I'm just reading about Git and trying to digest all of the emails around
this and this is my current
take on it all, so forgive any misunderstandings and terminology misuses.
