   During ApacheCon several httpd PMC members got together to discuss
current issues with the httpd project and to try to find better ways
manage the project.  One of the issues that was discussed heavily was
the current policy of RTC vs CTR.  The feeling of some of the PMC
members is that the RTC policy as it is currently implemented on the
branch, is causing unnecessary overhead which has resulted in the
slowdown of activity in the httpd project.  One proposal that was made
would be to adopt a lazy consensus rule.  Basically what this means is
that when a backport is proposed in the STATUS file, after a period of
time and if the proposal has not recieved any 0 or -1 votes, it would
automatically be approved for backport by lazy consensus.  The purpose
for this proposal is to avoid stagnation of backport proposals in the
STATUS file simply due to the lack of votes.
