Subject Re: Say "Hi" to 5 (!) new Apache Flex Committers
Date Mon, 19 Nov 2012 23:59:34 GMT

thanks to all people in this list, to the Apache Flex team to take me on
consideration and for this kindly welcome :)

There's so much things I'd like to see done in Apache Flex, and I'll try to
make it happen to the extent that I can. For example:

* Ease contributions and patch submission through getting GIT - GITHUB
official apache support on board. Chris Dutz show us valuable info some
days ago when he was at ApacheCon and we should get the same level of ease
that other projects (like Apache Cordova) has today. If we get this done I
think more people would be encourage to contribute and this will be very
positive for Apache Flex. Now that I'm a committer I think I could move
this task that was voted some months ago. Wish me luck! :)

* Start a POC for Flex 5 based on Haxe. This will be an experiment that
will try to implements the ideas behind the thread "Flex on Haxe". Whatever
this POC will be with the time, and since I advocate a full rewrite, my
position is to have the actual Flex 4.x branch and its evolution, and a new
FlexNext branch started from scratch. So people with different interest
could work in one or another. So all will be happy :).

* Maven is another key point in Flex and will be glad to help others, but
here I think Chris as a commiter and the head of flexmojos is the guy with
the leadership to follow.

* I want to try to develop as well some Easy Fix jira bugs and test the
Flex SDK development in the following days.

Many things and few time, since like others I have tons of work, but as
well two childs that eats lots of time ;)...but as well, great illusion and
hope in this project and the future of what Apache Flex can be.

So let's start getting up speed!  :)
