Hey Nóirín et al.,

Happy New Year! I've went ahead and updated my patch
on COMDEV-65 [1] with information on the org.apacheextras
namespace and with the suggestion to get further information
from the responsible Project Management Committees and
from ComDev PMC in general. I also changed Project Committees
to Project Management Committees per Nóirín's advice.

I also went ahead and (a) started a VOTE thread with the OODT
PMC on the naming of oodt-pushpull-plugins at Apache Extras [2]; 
and (b) updated the package names on [2] to match org.apacheextras.

With that, I'm considering this matter closed. 

Thanks for the advice everyone and best wishes in the New Year.
