It would depend. As I have said before, our goal as a PMC is to produce
useful Hadoop releases. Pulling out functionality that users require makes
the Hadoop releases less useful. Making users go to 20 different sites to
download compatible versions of the different components, although it helps
aggregating companies like RedHat, is an anti-goal.

That said, if projects are active enough splitting them out into other
Apache projects makes sense. Chukwa, HBase, Hive, Hive, Pig, and Zookeeper
are wonderful examples of related projects where we've moved them out of
Hadoop and their communities are healthier for the move. Moving actively
used components into non-Apache managed projects, including Apache Extras,
is an anti-goal.
