I too have participated to opensource developments.
I too can feel that lots of people say they'll contribute and never do.
But don't feel annoyed (like I thnk you are), because I knew this fact
Sorry if I get you upset, btw. My thread wasn't meant to do it at all.
Looking at the great opensource flash related projects, I find
nevertheless that an IDE to create flash content is definitively a
