They are concerned about getting all of their JIRA imported and have stumbled on some issues.
At the same time Adobe legal is reviewing each part and releasing in pieces. Since this report
was written the test suite has come in.

I think we'll be able to persuade the PPMC that they don't really want to manage their own
JIRA instance once that is done. So, they have a little infra delay.

Interestingly, today someone on the OpenOffice dev ML was pointing to Flex's logo contest
as a good idea for AOO.

I'll certainly try to suggest another report author when report time truly arrives. I agree
with Greg that we should remove this report.

The small things I found are:

rejected as we finalize licensing and other policy issues").  I don't think the negativity
belongs in the report.  This isn't a big problem unless it is representative of the general
community's state of mind, which I saw no evidence of in my short scan of the mail list.
