What 'dependency' to jakarta do you see ? 

And why removing the *dependency* between jakarta and ant be benefical to 
either of them ?

Jakarta is a bit more than just a container for a dozen or so of 
sub-projects - it is also a community and a brand.

And this is a benefit how ? Jakarta PMC is elected by jakarta commiters - 
and usually knows a lot more about jakarta projects than the apache board
( or so it seems ). 

( that besides having almost 1/2 of the members commiters on ant )

And I don't see why having a PMC and remaining under jakarta are exclusive.
