You missed my point - but never mind.

So just because a component/project has a lot of ML traffic you want
to make it TLP?

Usually it should be about having enough active committers and users.
While this might contribute to ML traffic, it doesn't necessarily mean the same.

Well, by the current definition it's not an Apache project. Call it
sub-project if you like - I don't care.
At some stage we decided to call it component. After all I see it as a library.

Do you think it's more and needs to be raised to the level to full
blown project like hadoop or httpd?
Not sure it Math holds that comparison but you are welcome to convince us.

And that's what I call an oversimplification.
