Given the code is under ALv2 anyone can that fork the code and go elsewhere at anytime. Whoever
does that  would need to respect the name however and wouldn’t  be allowed to call it the
same name of the Apache project.

For a podling to formally leave they would need to do ask the IPMC to vote, it would need
agreement of it's PPMC to do so. The only issue is around trademarks and name of the project.

We had a project do this recently, ODF ToolKit, [1] after spending 7 years in the incubator.
 In this case it failed to build community around it and found another place to continue to
do the work, there was some discussion and they were allowed to keep the name and domain names
transferred to the ASF. There may be a bit of house keeping to do after that. [2]
