To my thinking, a single set of committers should manage a product.  A 
product is something that's released.  Currently, we still branch and 
release Common, HDFS and MapReduce together, so I regard them as a 
single product and hence believe they should have a single set of 
committers.  If/when we start to release them separately then we can 
consider splitting committer lists.  Even then, we don't have to split 
them, since a single set of committers can manage multiple products.  In 
fact, I don't see a strong case for splitting committer lists until 
these become separate TLPs.  (The other Hadoop subprojects with separate 
committer lists ought to become TLPs, but that's a separate discussion.)
