I agree with Jukka on this. There is no such policy. There are
examples of well established TLPs doing similar. The files are
explicitly deprecated and will be eventually removed, they are for the
convenience of users and others building on top of Sqoop who are
migrating from the original code base to Apache based packages. It
makes total sense to provide a bridge that enables that group to move
to the Apache version of the code.
