Subject Re: [VOTE] Amend CouchDB bylaws

New doc is here:

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=44302833

Diff is here:

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/pages/diffpagesbyversion.action?pageId=44302833&selectedPageVersions=2&selectedPageVersions=1

I messed up the copying and pasting of the old doc, and there are big
sections of blue. This is just the rich text stuff getting confused.
Those blue sections indicate "formatting changes", but no such changes
were made.
