All work done on Apache projects is done by volunteers on those specific
projects.  The ASF as a whole does not provide technical direction, nor
do we push any sort of coordination between projects.

That is: work on Apache projects is done by the committers doing the
work themselves.  So if you have suggestions for specific Apache
projects to improve things, you need to show up with some specific
suggestions for improvements on their dev@ mailing list(s).

More choices means that more different kinds of users might want to use
our software.  The mission of the ASF is to produce software for the
public good.  As long as *someone* thinks an Apache project is useful -
and is willing to contribute code back to that project - we're happy for
that project to go in whatever technical direction they want to.  Even
if that means there are several projects in similar technology spaces.
