One of the requirements for a proposal to incubate a new project in the Apache Software Foundation is to have an initial set of committers. A committer has to sign a license agreement with Apache in order to obtain write access to the source code repository. A committer’s responsibilities are listed at http://www.apache.org/dev/committers.html#committer-responsibilities.
As we announced at the Flex Community Summit earlier this week, we are looking to identify the initial committers for the Flex SDK incubation proposal. If you want to be on this list of initial committers, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org by noon PST Friday, December 16, 2011. We may limit the initial set to around 12, but you can still become a committer after that by following the process outlined by Apache. And remember, if you don’t want to be a committer, you can still contribute in many ways.
We are excited to be engaging the community in the shaping of Flex, and look forward to your future contributions.
