Not sure that's the case, eg I think we all want to keep yarn in the
same code repository, allow patches that update it along with other
hadoop subprojects, co-design it with MR, test/release it together as
well.  That's not a sign of a distinct community.

I agree though, if people want a distinct community, then making it a
TLP is the right approach.
