Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
Try this with this feature: http://waterfall.features.bkstg.artistarena.com/node/1.
Enable the feature. Make some changes to say one of the views. Then revert all the features. The flag component won't go to default status unless you go disable the flag itself.
If this is by design please explain. I am coming from the point of view that I want my features to be in their default state all the time to simplify deployment.
Thanks for the great module! Love it
