Todd's list seems more in line with the goal of reducing project
members to reflect the actual community.

I see Chris' point about the community issues, however I also see
Todd's point that splitting the projects does not address these issues
while bringing real overhead and rolling back things we've done
recently to un-split the projects (per the vote thread I'm in favor of
combining the committer lists even if we later split projects). In
short, I'm open to a project split and willing to discuss, I don't yet
see sufficient benefits to provide a concrete proposal myself.
