Actually the reverse :-) These projects are probably under more development now than ever.

Ex-jakarta means that the project is so successful that it is no longer a sub-project of jakarta but a main apache project in it's own right, example are Tomcat, Ant and Struts which all originated from jakarta before becoming full Apache projects.
