Yes, Chris, you are right.
I am nothing but a (happy ;-) user of swftools; mostly pdf2swf.
I do not think I could contribute any direct value to the project.
But hopefully I can be of some help for others, sharing my experience, and actively participate in discussions.

And of course also hoping to find a solution fo myself and others ;-)

Well, at present, as with the Apple stuff ( and apart from the Flash

Am I correct in understanding that Hans is the manager of this
project?  If so, shouldn't the project be managed by somebody who
actually uses Adobe products?

How would one go about adopting the project

With respect my friend, that's nil points for observance.  I humbly
suggest you skim the web site, documentation wiki,  Such a small amount
of effort would certainly enlighten you as to the SWFTools' project
originator, and maintainer(s).

Should you feel that this information is not obvious, then let me know.
I will make sure the wiki states it more clearly.

As far as I am aware, Hans is but a happy user of the swftools utility
suite.  Anyone is welcome to be a contributor, in whatever form that
should take, from mailing list comment, suggestions and assistance, to
code patches.  Such is the nature of an *Open Source* project.


Choosing to not run proprietary software is my personal choice.  Since
Adobe publishes the file format specifications for both SWF and PDF
( see: http://wiki.swftools.org ), and there is such a plethora of
excellent software out there which maniplates those formats, including
SWFTools itself, why should anyone who 'manages' an Open Source project
need to run Adobe products?   Compatiblity should surely be with the
file formats, and not with proprietary software applications that also
maniplate them. This includes AIR.
