-1 from me as well, I agree with Chris' points.

This looks either like an umbrella project (which we don't want
anymore) or a PMC not trusting its committers.

IMO the options are either graduating Hive as a TLP (assuming the
podling is in good standing for that to happen), or having Hive adopt
the HCatalog code *and its committers*.

In the second case, no need for a change of bylaws - if those new
folks are committers, they can just be told to avoid touching code
that they don't master (*), and the goal should be to make them PMC
members as soon as possible, so that in the end HCatalog is just a
module of Hive, with no artificial PMC split.


(*) like any committer - and a PMC can always suspend or revoke
committership in the unlikely case where that doesn't work.
