I have been working with Adobe management and the Flash development
team for quite some time. It seems, just as with the redistribution
agreement we worked out with them, the legal department is most likely
the hold up. I will have an update for the FreeBSD community within
the next couple of months. In the meantime, just in case, it could be
worthwhile to further our support of linux-flash9 under FreeBSD.
