Jakarta's "java-catch-all" nature is a major reason for why Jakarta is in
the middle of a long process of being dismantled.  Catch-all, or "umbrella",
projects are considered bad things.

That said, one of thing things that the ASF needs to look at is how to
improve communication across projects.  Project boundaries are
administrative, but as we disband umbrella projects, we are losing
communication within ontological domains that cross administative
boundaries.  Resolving that is an unresolved issue.  Perhaps having some
ontological mailing lists would be part of a solution.  A subject for
another thread ...

Ah, whew!  Someone who actually gets it!  :-)
