Last time I proposed that the Jakarta PMC asks some projects if they 
wanted to go top-level it did not get a... well... good reception.

Jakarta is not a "push" PMC, it tends to work more like "pull"; it does 
not really encourage projects to go on their own, but will support if 
they ask for it first.

There is a "trick" though in making the projects ask for it: make 
committers in Jakarta have all blanket CVS access. This way projects 
that want to keep their "own" community must ask to go top level for it.

Dunno how the thing is going now though, I got tired of waiting for some 
action and left the PMC.
