Subject [VOTE] blog post
Date Thu, 12 Jan 2012 13:38:23 GMT
Hi everyone,

As per Bertrand's proposal I have a post I'd like to publish on the blog,
see below. Setting up a vote with 24 hour lazy consensus "if no one opposes
within 24 hours I'll post this" (or as soon as I get my blog account :)).


Title: Flex settling in at the Apache Software Foundation

The beginning of a new era for Flex, on December 31st 2011 our project got
accepted as an incubator podling at the Apache Software Foundation.

Now the real work begins - if you have joined the developer mailing list
you will have seen some of the excitement and discussion on how to move the
technology forward. One thing we can say for sure, we have a good group of
enthusiastic volunteers and no lack of ideas.

We've seen some great first contributions to the whiteboard area by several
committers that could potentially make it in a next release. Our
contributors from Adobe are working with their legal department to get
source submitted to the Apache code repository - special thanks to Alex and
Carol for their hard work!

How can you get involved? Well if you're a Flex developer and would like to
contribute you can join the mailing list. The mantra at Apache is "if it
didn't happen on the mailing list, it didn't happen." We're also looking
for a logo for Apache Flex, if you've got some good design skills and would
like to submit a proposal you have until January 17th to get something in.

In short, we're excited to see things getting up and running and the amount
of enthusiasm shown by the community about the future of Flex at Apache.
