Making and tracking decisions at Apache is done via public ASF mailing
lists, exclusively.
Any other means of communication, including face-to-face, JIRA, IRC
etc, is *not binding*.
Every community member has equal say (only PMC members votes are
binding though).
Committers can veto commits and commit to svn. PMC members have
special rights and duties, too, as described in our Bylaws.

That's about it.

If Hadoop has issues tracking and making decisions, you won't fix that
by introducing any formalities.
