I may not have followed this quite correctly, here is what I understood of
the situation as you described it:

1) there is a bug in the FlexJS distro, considered low priority due to
sparse use

2) you needed a quickly corrected binary distribution

3) you created a correct distribution artifact and put it somewhere

4) you aren't claiming that the artifact you created is an Apache release
and you are pointing some workshop participants at your release.

I fail to see any problem whatsoever in what you did.  You used Apache
software to create a derived work which you are asking people to use in an
instructional setting.  As far as I can tell, the only claim you are making
is that your artifact is FlexJS with a fix that should be incorporated
upstream before long.

What's the problem?
