+1 - no leaders around here, just people doing the work. An ASF project is "led" by whoever
is active, that means lots of leaders at any one time. Those "leaders" are always answerable
to the community as a whole.

This might often seem like it is "nit-picking", it's just a language thing in most cases,
especially when those doing the work have the full (silent) support of the community as a
whole. However, if there is ever a time that the people doing the work appear to be heading
in the wrong direction the flat structure of an Apache project becomes extremely important.
For this reason language is very important.

We are all peers. No Capitan, no Champion, no Mentors.

Speaking for myself, I won't be a *participant* in the community, but will pop in as a guide.
Decisions are best made by all of you. I can help with describing mechanisms and process (or
how to avoid that!).

Happy New Years!
