    > Because we're not developing those projects, and there is a separation/delegation
of responsibilities. We are not the upstream for those projects. We do not control the direction,
compatibility, or bugfixes of those dependencies, or their release cycles. They do not fall
under the Accumulo PMC responsibilities, and if we tried to take that on, I think it would
be too much for our small community to cover, and it would introduce scope creep into the
Accumulo project.
    > I think it's much healthier for us to engage and develop those connections with those
other projects, and users, rather than try to take on a scope which is inherently their responsibility.
    Long term, perhaps. But this seems like a long path.
    > Do you mean relocate, like shading does? Because I'm definitely not a fan of that.
That can cause a lot of hidden problems (can't relocate dynamically loaded classes, for one),
and would add a lot of extra work for downstream packagers who are trying to do dependency
convergence/integration under a no-bundling/dynamic-libs-only environment like most Linux
    It doesn't invalidate the ability for downstream people to still do whatever they want.
These classes should also not be getting dynamically loaded, should they? They would comprise
the "core" of Accumulo. It would simplify the case for users who just want to get up and running
(that are not release engineering experts).
