A good example of how such a vision is being realized at the ASF is
the Hadoop project that has given birth to a growing ecosystem of
related cloud and big data projects at and around the ASF. Instead of
Hadoop hosting related projects like HBase, Pig, ZooKeeper, etc. as
subprojects under a single PMC, it simply acts as a central focus
point for a larger cluster of projects.

I'd love to see Cordova increasingly position itself as such a focus
point for mobile web projects both within and outside the ASF. One
concrete idea towards such a goal could be to start a general@ mailing
list as a shared forum like the one Hadoop has for discussions that
reach beyond the boundaries of individual projects or codebases.
