Yes, probably too early.

HttpClient is the only one that has tried to go to be a subproject within 
Jakarta. However it still isn't there, despite it being approved long ago.

Also, Jakarta is an odd destination to head for. The ASF board encourages 
projects to move out of Jakarta and become top level at apache (like Ant, 
Struts etc) (Note this is controversial with some people)

If you believe that you can do a quality 0.5 release now then you are 
probably OK for commons promotion. However, you may need to advertise a 
possible package rename if you intend to move out of commons longer term.

Also, read the commons charter and see if you think feedparser fits.
