The goal of splitting the project is in part to split the community. 
The Core Jira traffic is currently higher than many folks can easily 
follow.  By splitting the project we hope to permit more folks to be 
involved, since the time required to follow the new, smaller projects 
will be less.  Folks who are primarily interested in only one subproject 
will have more time to work on patches since they'll spend less time 
reading messages for issues they don't care about.  We also hope that 
there will be significant overlap between subproject communities, so 
that the TLP continues to make sense.
