We really need to split hadoop-core into two or more subprojects 
Keeping HDFS, MapReduce, Hive, HOD, etc. in a single project is not 
scalable.  Nigel vetoed this because he thinks it will complicate QA, 
but I think (a) it will simplify so many other people's lives that it is 
well worth any such cost and (b) the net change in QA effort will be 
quite moderate.  Yes, there will be more projects to QA, but they'll be 
simpler projects.

Modifying the mailing lists is a band aid.  It will help those who're 
not already doing similar things with filters already, but it will cause 
everyone who does have filters to have to re-jigger their filters. 
There will be some confusion and time wasted explaining it to folks.

So I'm fine with this change being made, but it doesn't really address 
the glaring problem that we have too much happening under a single roof.
