+Title:   Project HistoryXXX
+The goal of this page is to document the history of the Apache Flex, starting with Adobe
+deciding to donate it to the Apache Software Foundation (ASF), incubation and Apache Flex
becoming a top level project.
+It might be useful for other similar projects, or any incubating project, as an example of
the steps involved in
+an Apache incubation.
+See [http://incubator.apache.org](http://incubator.apache.org) for the official Incubator
documentation, and
+in particular the [incubation process description](http://incubator.apache.org/incubation/Process_Description.html)
+<div class="headline"><h4> 2011: Adobe decides to contribute Flex to the ASF
+The decision is made within Adobe to incubate Flex at the ASF. Work starts on the incubation
proposal, on explaining
+internally what this means, on the legal/IP clearance steps required to donate the code and
on recruiting
+initial committers who will help get the project started.
+<div class="headline"><h4> December 12, 2011: Flex Summit </h4></div>
+The [Flex Summit](http://tv.adobe.com/show/flex-community-summit-december-2011) is organized
to make
+the Flex community aware of the upcoming changes, and to allow initial Flex committers to
sign up and network.
+Among the available videos, these two provide interesting insights on how Apache projects
work, by Roy Fielding,
+one of the ASF's founders:
+- [What it means to be an Apache project, part 1](http://tv.adobe.com/watch/flex-community-summit-december-2011/what-it-means-to-be-an-apache-project-part-1/)
+- [What it means to be an Apache project, part 2](http://tv.adobe.com/watch/flex-community-summit-december-2011/what-it-means-to-be-an-apache-project-part-2/)
+The following blog posts provide other views on the event, and show that it was useful for
the Flex community
+and for the upcoming Apache Flex project:
+- [Flex given to the Apache Software Foundation – round-up and opportunities](http://www.flex-tutorial.fr/2011/12/17/flex-given-to-the-apache-software-foundation-round-up-and-opportunities)

+<div class="headline"><h4> December 20, 2011: Incubation proposal submitted </h4></div>
+The [Incubation proposal](http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/FlexProposal) is submitted
+and [discussed](http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-general/201112.mbox/%3CCB14DCA2.3885F%25aharui%40adobe.com%3E)
on the incubator-general mailing list, followed after a few days (once the
+discussion dies down) by the Incubator PMC vote mentioned below.
+The list of incubation mentors is completed during the proposal's discussion phase, after
asking for volunteers
+when submitting the proposal.
+A few initial committers are also added during the discussion phase.
+<div class="headline"><h4> December 22, 2011: Vote for Anne and Dave as incubator
PMC members </h4></div>
+Project mentors need to be members of the Incubator PMC, ASF members just need to ask to
get this membership.
+Committers who are not (yet) Apache members need to be voted in by the Incubator PMC, which
is done
+around December 22 for Anne and Dave.
+<div class="headline"><h4> December 27, 2011: [VOTE] Flex to join the Apache
Incubator </h4></div>
+The [Incubator PMC vote](http://markmail.org/message/puo2rtrvby65lb3m)
+lasts at least 72 hours, after which whoever started it
+[tallies it](http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/incubator-general/201112.mbox/%3CCAEWfVJmMq390Hinafg%2Bjik8VqboYG1ixe_gnz5O2bV5q5mtKPw%40mail.gmail.com%3E).
+the vote for Flex passes on December 30th.
+<div class="headline"><h4> Late December 2011: Basic infrastructure is created
+See for example the
+[INFRA-4260](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-4260) (create mailing lists)
+[INFRA-4262](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-4262) (create JIRA instance)
+Flex is added to the Incubator's [reporting schedule](http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/ReportingSchedule).
+The [Flex incubation status page](http://incubator.apache.org/projects/flex.html) is created.
+People are invited to subscribe to the new Apache Flex [mailing lists](/flex/mailing-lists.html)
+Those lists are added to [flex.markmail.org](http://flex.markmail.org) for convenience, using
the markmail feedback form.
+Discussions and consensus building start, including clarifications about the role of the
PPMC, committers
+and community, whether to create roadmaps or just let things evolve organically, etc.
+<div class="headline"><h4> Late 2011 and early 2012: User accounts </h4></div>
+Mentors request creation of Apache accounts for the initial committers listed in the
+[incubation proposal](http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/FlexProposal), after asking people
which Apache ID
+they would like, avoiding collisions with [existing IDs](http://people.apache.org/committer-index.html).
+Initial committers, who are also PPMC members, are invited to subscribe to the Flex private
mailing list
+(which is used for discussions about people, new committers etc. and as little as possible
besides that) and
+made aware of the [Apache guide for new committers](http://www.apache.org/dev/new-committers-guide.html).
+Flex committers are granted write access to the [subversion repository](http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/flex/)
+and [JIRA issue tracker](https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FLEX) and can start actual
coding work.
+<div class="headline"><h4> January 17, 2012: Software grant received </h4></div>
+Adobe's [software grant](http://www.apache.org/licenses/software-grant.txt) is received by
the ASF's
+secretary, the Flex code can now be imported into Apache Flex's code repository.
+<div class="headline"><h4> February 22, 2012: First committer voted in </h4></div>
+Justin Mclean is the first Flex committer (besides the initial committers listed in the incubation
proposal) to
+be voted in, after a short discussion and a vote on the Flex private
+mailing list, as per the [incubator's instructions](http://incubator.apache.org/guides/ppmc.html).
+<div class="headline"><h4> March 27, 2012: MXMLC donation announced </h4></div>
+The legal/IP clearance work for that module is done on the Adobe side, that code is ready
to be donated.
+<div class="headline"><h4> August 30, 2012: Falcon legalities completed </h4></div>
+Apache recorded Adobe's donation documents for the source code to the next-generation Falcon
