What is your vision on where things should end up?  Can you identify what
new commons sub-projects we will have?  If it is just 3 or 4 I have no
problem with that. But if we are going to have 10 sub-projects then I
really feel like it should be done as:

A:  Commons Math with Commons Math RNG, Commons Math Numbers, Commons Math
XXX, etc.
B: Math TLP with RNG, Numbers, XXX, etc.

I have a few reasons for feeling this way:
        1. Although you seem to disagree, these components do seem to be
related in that they all have something to do with Mathematical concepts.
        2. It is easier for users to find if they are all grouped together.

That said, all of this is just housekeeping and can be addressed at almost
any time.  If you want to create a new Commons component you can create a
new git repo any time you want to. The only time you really need to ask for
permission from the PMC is when you want to integrate it into the Commons
home page. Of course, you should seek consensus from your fellow Math
developers but if you make a repo and populate it I am sure that others
will go along if they can see that what you have done is a good idea.

I keep getting the impression that you believe people are standing in your
way. They aren’t. If you start a discussion you should expect people to
weigh in. Just because they disagree doesn’t mean they are going to stop
you. But if you don’t listen to their opinion don’t expect to get much help


I agree with Ralph. Nice message. Great options, and simple, A or B :-)
