Subject Re: [PROPOSAL] Flex for Apache Incubator
Date Wed, 21 Dec 2011 15:29:26 GMT

Good question.  We are working with the Adobe lawyers to help us with the
license compatibility issues, including between the Adobe opensource
license and the Apache license.

Adobe has a company shutdown from tomorrow until after the New Year, so
while Alex and I are busy preparing for incubation, the Adobe lawyers are
not around to help us for a couple of weeks.
