I find myself disgusted by this widespread assumption that each project
needs its own bylaws. WTF for? Are not ASF policies and practices enough
for everyone? What sort of bylaws could you possibly invent that are
both a useful extension of these policies and practices /and/ are not
applicable to other projects?

Per-project bylaws are just a tool for fragmenting the ASF community, in
other words, they're a bad idea; paper-shuffling at its most useless.
