needs to
                           be addressed.  Any member of the Avalon community may start the
                           discussion. The proposer must follow the procedures listed under
the
                           heading "Prior to the Vote".</p>

                       <p>The vote administrator is the person who tallies the votes
and reports
                           the results.  The person who actually puts a proposal up for vote
is
                           usually the vote administrator, although this task can be taken
on by
                           someone else.</p>

                       <p>A voter is someone who expresses support, opposition or abstention
for
                           the subject being voted on.  A voter must be an Avalon PMC member.
Input
                           is appreciated from committers and all other members of the community,
                           but only votes from PMC members are counted.</p>

                   <p>Before any vote can take place, the subject must be discussed.
All such
                       discussions take place on the Avalon developer or PMC mailing list,
and
                       have the text "[PROPOSAL]" in the subject line.  That practice alerts
                       members to the fact that you eventually intend to call a vote on the
                       subject.</p>

  -
  +                
                   <p>When the proposal is ready to be adopted by the community, the
Proposer
                       will call for a vote on the Avalon developers or PMC mailing list.
The
                       call for vote must have the text "[PMC:VOTE]" in the subject line.
 That
                       practice alerts the members to the fact that the prior proposal is
now
                       ready to vote on, and discussion should stop for the proposal.</p>
