Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Flex for Apache Incubator
Date Tue, 20 Dec 2011 22:04:05 GMT

The legal stuff page for the Flex SDK 
( mention 3 
different downloads:

   * Free Adobe Flex SDK
   * Open Source Flex SDK
   * Adobe Add-ons for Open Source Flex SDK

Is the SDK version which will be contributed to Apache the "Free Adobe 
Flex SDK" or the "Open Source Flex SDK"?

Since the add-ons contain "Adobe Flash Player, Adobe AIR, the advanced 
font encoding libraries, and the code that allows licensing of things 
like the Data Visualization components", I would assume that Apache Flex 
will mainly be the Open Source Flex SDK?
