The easiest might be to host the Flex installer outside of Apache
Flex, as a separate project where its contributors are free to do
whatever. This would make it clearer that the installer is not an
Apache thing, and that it might not offer the same level of confidence
that our source releases, not the same clean "nothing worse than
Apache license inside" guarantee.

We used to have http://community.apache.org/apache-extras/faq.html for
such things but AFAIK people cannot host downloads there anymore so it
might not be useful here. But the idea is the same - cleanly separate
the Apache project from extras that might be useful to some people,
but don't give the same guarantees.
