To be clear, Apache Commons currently lists about 40 sub-projects. These
projects are typically small and not closely related with any other
sub-project in any clear way.  The objection isn’t to adding more
sub-projects, it is to adding more sub-projects that seem related closely
enough that really belong together.  However, I don’t believe anyone
objected to Commons Math being a multi-module project.

I would object to creating new Commons components that are forked off from
Commons Math that have no maintainers.

It is "Commons Math" that does not have maintainers.

The new components, would, conspicuously, have maintainers.
That's one of the main arguments in favour of this option.

If there is code the Commons Math
team doesn’t want then just get rid of it in your new version.

This option had been rejected in previous discussions, when I
suggested that I would not release code that I could not
