+    <h1 class="title">How to edit the Aiaravata website</h1>
+    <p>This HowTo documentation will show the needed steps to edit the Airavata
+website. This includes creation of new pages, modification, and deletion - for files
+and sub-directories.</p>
+<h2 id="how_it_works_in_general">How it works in general</h2>
+<p>The website is hosted in a Content Management System (CMS). You will not edit the
+HTML pages directly. The actual edit is splittup in 2 parts:</p>
+<ol>
+<li>
+<p>First you edit the content which is provided as <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Markdown">Markdown
text</a> (mdtext).
+    This will be committed into the staging section (see the SVN commit mail with
+    your log message) and automatically build HTML files out of the the mdtext files
+    (see the commit mail with "Staging update by buildbot" as log messge).</p>
+</li>
+<li>
+<p>Second you need to publish the staging part to the production section (see the
+    commit mail with "Publishing merge to openofficeorg site by <your Apache ID>"
+    as log message).</p>
+</li>
+</ol>
+<h2 id="what_do_you_prefer_working_via_commandline_or_in_the_browser">What do you prefer:
Working via commandline or in the browser?</h2>
+<h3 id="via_commandline">Via commandline</h3>
+<p>It is assumed that you have already checked out the code from the SVN repository
+(https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/airavata/site).</p>
+<p>Edit the file via your favorite editor like vi and finally commit via SVN:</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre><span class="n">vi</span> <span class="n">myfile</span><span
class="o">.</span><span class="n">mdtext</span>
+<span class="n">svn</span> <span class="n">ci</span> <span class="o">-</span><span
class="n">m</span> <span class="s">&quot;My log message&quot;</span>
<span class="n">myfile</span><span class="o">.</span><span class="n">mdtext</span>
+</pre></div>
+
+
+<p>Now wait a few seconds so that the entire website can be rebuilt. Then:</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre><span class="n">curl</span> <span
class="o">-</span><span class="n">sL</span> <span class="n">http:</span><span
class="sr">//s</span><span class="o">.</span><span class="n">apache</span><span
class="o">.</span><span class="n">org</span><span class="o">/</span><span
class="n">cms</span><span class="o">-</span><span class="n">cli</span>
<span class="o">|</span> <span class="n">perl</span>
+</pre></div>
+
+
+<p>If this does not work on your local machine just do it on "people.apache.org" by
+executing this:</p>
+<div class="codehilite"><pre><span class="n">ssh</span> <span
class="o">-</span><span class="n">t</span> <span class="sr">&lt;user&gt;</span><span
class="nv">@people</span><span class="o">.</span><span class="n">apache</span><span
class="o">.</span><span class="n">org</span> <span class="n">publish</span><span
class="o">.</span><span class="n">pl</span> <span class="n">airavata</span>
<span class="o">&lt;</span><span class="n">your</span> <span
class="n">Apache</span> <span class="n">ID</span><span class="o">&gt;</span>
+</pre></div>
+
+
+<h3 id="editing_in_the_browser">Editing in the browser</h3>
+<h4 id="prerequisites">Prerequisites</h4>
+<h5 id="browser_bookmark">Browser bookmark</h5>
+<p>Normally you see the webpage in your browser. To update this page with an

+    <h1 class="title">Consensus Building</h1>
+    <p>In some cases there is no obvious path to take, or you might be a new community,

+or a new member of an existing community. In these cases people will often 
+need to build consensus by making proposals and eliciting responses.</p>
+<p>We want to avoid unnecessary discussion and the creation of significant
+amounts of unnecessary mail that everyone in the community needs to read. 
+That is not to say that we want to avoid constructive discussion. This is 
+the lifeblood of a successful project. However, many ASF projects adopt a 
+shorthand notation for showing support, or otherwise, for a proposal.</p>
+<h2 id="expressing_support_or_otherwise">Expressing support (or otherwise)</h2>
+<p>The notation used is "+1", "-1" and "0". It's also common to see "+0" and "-0".</p>
+<p>So, what do these notations mean?</p>
+<ul>
+<li>+1 means "I agree with this and will help make it happen"</li>
+<li>+0 means "I agree with this but probably won't make it happen, so my 
+opinion is not that important"</li>
+<li>-0 means "I don't agree with this, but I'm offering no alternative so 
+my opinion is not that important"</li>
+<li>-1 means "I don't agree and I am offering an alternative that I am able 
+to help implement"</li>
+</ul>
+<p>Many people will use fractions to indicate the strength of their feelings,
+ e.g. "+0.5". Some will even indicate this is a "no brainer" with something 
+like "+1000".</p>
+<p>The important thing is that this is not an exact science. It's just a shorthand

+way of communicating strength of feeling.</p>
+<h2 id="consensus_building_is_not_voting">Consensus Building is Not Voting</h2>
+<p>The confusing thing about this notation is that it is the same notation
+used in a formal vote. Knowing when something is a vote and when it is a 
+preference is important. It's easy to tell though, if the subject does not have 
+"[Vote]" at the start then it's just an opinion. We try not to call votes,
+consensus building is much more inclusive.</p>
+<p>The reasons for this notation being common is 
+that when someone wants to summarise a discussion thread they can mentally 
+add up the strength of feeling of the community and decide if there is consensus
+or not.</p>
+<p>Once there is a clear consensus members of the community can proceed with 
+the work under the <a href="/airavata/docs/governance/lazyConsensus.html">lazy consensus</a>
model.</p>

+    <h1 class="title">Lazy Consensus</h1>
+    <p>The concept of "Lazy Consensus" is very important in our project. Lazy
+Consensus means that when you are convinced that you know what the community
+would like to see happen you can simply assume that you already have consensus
+and get on with the work. You don't have to insist people discuss and/or
+approve your plan, and you certainly don't need to call a vote to get approval.
+You just assume you have the community's support unless someone says otherwise.</p>
+<p>We have a time machine (Subversion), this means that as long as you commit 
+(or submit patches) early and often the community has plenty of opportunity 
+to indicate disapproval. If you believe the community will support your action
+you can operate on lazy consensus as long as you are prepared to roll back 
+any work should a valid objection is raised.</p>
+<h2 id="avoiding_unnecessary_discussion">Avoiding Unnecessary Discussion</h2>
+<p>The key thing about lazy consensus is that it's easier for people to agree,
+by doing nothing, than it is to object, which requires an
+alternative to be proposed. This has two effects, firstly people are less 
+likely to object for the sake of it and secondly it cuts down on the amount 
+of unnecessary mail traffic and discussion.</p>
+<p>Lazy consensus means we can avoid waiting for a community based decision 
+before proceeding. However, it does require everyone who cares for the health
+of the project to watch what is happening, as it is happening. Objecting too 
+far down the road will cause upset, but objecting (or asking for clarification 
+of intent) early is likely to be greeted with relief that someone is watching
+and cares.</p>
+<h2 id="stating_lazy_consensus">Stating Lazy Consensus</h2>
+<p>Sometimes a member of the community will believe a specific action is the correct

+one for the community but are not sure enough to proceed with the work under the 
+lazy consensus model. In these circumstances they can state Lazy Consensus is in 
+operation.</p>
+<p>What this means is that they make a proposal and state that they will start 
+implementing it in 72 hours unless someone objects. 72 hours is chosen because
+it accounts for different timezones and non-apache commitments.</p>
+<p>In this approach the original proposal is not insisting that there is a discussion
+around their proposal, nor are they requesting that the community explicitly 
+supports their actions. However, this differs from assuming lazy consensus 
+since it allows space and time to <a href="/openofficeorg/docs/governance/consensusBuilding.html">express
support or objections</a> and corrections to 
+the proposal before work begins. </p>
+<h2 id="silence_is_consent">Silence is consent</h2>
+<p>People may choose to indicate their support for the actions taken with a +1 
+mail - quick and easy to read and reassuring for the implementer. However, 
+remember, in a lazy consensus world silence is the equivalent to support. This
+can take some time to get used to.</p>

+    <h1 class="title">Voting</h1>
+    <p>Occasionally a "feel" for consensus is not enough. Sometimes we need to have
a
+measurable consensus. For example, when voting in new committers or to approve a
+release. </p>
+<h2 id="preparing_for_a_vote">Preparing for a Vote</h2>
+<p>Before calling a vote it is important to ensure that the community is given time
to
+discuss the upcoming vote. This will be done by posting an email to the list
+indicating the intention to call a vote and the options available. By the time a
+vote is called there should already be <a href="http://incubator.apache.org/openofficeorg/docs/governance/consensusBuilding.html">consensus
in the community</a>. The vote 
+itself is, normally, a formality.</p>
+<h2 id="calling_a_vote">Calling a Vote</h2>
+<p>Once it is time to call the vote a mail is posted with a subject starting with
+"[VOTE]". This enables the community members to ensure they do not miss an important
+vote thread. It also indicates that this is not consensus building but a formal
+vote. The initiator is responsible for the vote. That means also to count the votes
+and present the results. Everyone has 1 vote.</p>
+<h3 id="casting_your_vote">Casting Your Vote</h3>
+<p>The notation used in voting is:</p>
+<p>+1 (means I vote positive)
+   You can say why you vote positive but it's not a must-have.</p>
+<p>0 (means I have no strong opinion, aka abstention)</p>
+<p>-1 (means I vote negative because of the following reason)
+   Yes, you must support your objection and provide an alternative course of action
+   that you are willing and able to implement (where appropriate).</p>
