The PMC can't "move" code to Apache extras. It can only choose to  
abandon code that it doesn't want to support any longer. As a separate  
action some group of developers may create projects in Apache Extras  
based on the code from Hadoop.

Therefore the question is really what if any code Hadoop wants to  
abandon. That is a good question and one that we should ask ourselves  

After a quick consideration, my personal list would look like:

fault injection

Also note that pushing code out of Hadoop has a high cost. There are  
at least 3 forks of the hadoop-gpl-compression code. That creates a  
lot of confusion for the users. A lot of users never go to the work to  
figure out which fork and branch of hadoop-gpl-compression work with  
the version of Hadoop they installed.
