Sorry to harp on a bit more with generic opinions that may or may not apply :)

A 3-deep umbrella is another warning sign. I've found that the
subprojects of subprojects are much harder for a PMC to maintain
oversight over - given that they can't have sub-PMCs as such would be
an example of redundant foundationing. Over the time many of the PMC
don't even know that they exist.
