What? I've seen people say the vote should be canceled, that Sqoop needs to
yank the code, etc. Those are most certainly impositions.

This is no mere "discussion"; it is some number of people attempting to
impose some unstated policy upon Sqoop before "allowing" them to graduate.

Raise what issue? I have not seen a statement of the problem, other than
"projects sometimes deem it necessary to use package names in addition to
org.apache". But I don't see the problem in that. Could you at least
explain here before bringing a question to the Board? If it is legal in
nature, then it should go to legal-discuss.
