Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Bylaws Change - Majority Approval for Code Changes

-1 (I vote to keep current consensus approach)

An alternative method for resolution would be to setup an
elected (or appointed) advisory board of a small number of folks whose
job it is to look out for the long-term health and strategy of Accumulo.  This board could
be appealed to on the rare occassions when consensus over important long-term issues
cannot be achieved.  Just the presence of such a board often has the effect
encouraging productive compromise amongst participants.

instead of consensus approval. I'd like to explore this idea as it might keep the voting email
threads less verbose and leave the discussion and consensus building to the comments in JIRA.
