Yes, extract out the FDS.

As for a release schedule, I don't think there would need to be one. We
would put out new releases as needed for new features or components. These
releases would be totally independent of NiFi or NiFi Registry. The
intention with this project is to follow semantic versioning and avoid
making breaking changes so using this library in NiFi or the NiFi Registry
would be as simple as updating the version number in the package.json and
rebuilding the application.

As for validation of releases I have a couple of ideas. I envisioned this
code base would follow a RTC paradigm and the initial release of this FDS
NgModule would include unit test coverage of all the existing
features/components/utils. Any new features/components/utils would require
adequate test coverage before being merged to NiFi FDS master. We could
also provide a demo application that users can build and deploy locally to
allow for human verification or even e2e testing...

I took the liberty of standing up a repo to give everyone a better idea of
what we are all talking about.

Since no server or backend is required to run these UI/UX components I also
stood a demo of this as a page here:
