I don't speak for the board, but my opinion is that if a sub-project
is OK as long as it is actively managed by the same PMC as the parent
project.

Where I start to get worried is when a sub-project takes on a life of
its own and significant portions of the parent PMC are not interested
in the sub-project and thus fail to provide appropriate oversight. The
more sub-projects there are in a project the more likely this is to
happen.

I'm interested to hear if this is also the opinion of others and thus
I've changed the subject. In terms of Nuvem I'm interested in the
answer to Bertrands question.
