I'm going to add it to our documentation so it won't disappear and
wonder where it should end up. "Project Guidelines" [1] seems to be a
goot fit, but I'm not so sure as bylaws != guidelines (?). "Apache
Geronimo Development Process" [2] is good, too. Unless there're better
places I'll make the choice.
