Hi Marvin, IMO, this version of the document also doesn’t prohibit me from
updating the binary package without a vote.  It seems like some portions
of this document is supposed to apply to binary packages like the
LICENSE/NOTICE sections so I think that’s why there is still ongoing
debate on the Flex mailing list about whether I can in fact modify the
FlexJS binary package.

At this point, unless someone not on the Flex PMC says that we can’t make
the modifications, I am planning to add a new entry to the Flex Installer
that points to bits that are hosted on  my personal server called “Apache
FlexJS 0.0.2 (with Jburg)” and expose it to the general public.  All of
the compiled bits are the same, but I have added the jburg.jar to the
package to workaround the problem.  The original binary package will
remain on dist/mirrors.

Thanks,
-Alex
