Multiple repos are, of course, permissible. However, the question you should
be asking your self are more along the lines of how much of a de-couple
release policy AND community participation do you want to have between
these projects. Because the thing is, if your repos are independent enough
wrt. release schedules AND independent enough regarding who commits
to them ASF will be asking a question of breaking you into a set of projects.

Does this answer you question?
