Whatever works. If you want to make changes directly, go ahead, otherwise 
I'll collect feedback from the list.

OK, I grabbed most of this directly from httpd but I did think 100% 
consensus may not be practical. Agreed that we should use lazy consensus.

OK, we can make that a majority (whatever proportion we like - 50%, 2/3, 
3/4) of votes cast within a given period (we'll need to define the voting 
periods - 72 hours, 1 week ?)

OK, 6 months is too long - agreed.
