I stand corrected then.

And define it there as "a lazy majority vote requires 3 binding +1
votes and more binding +1 votes than -1 votes".

http://www.apache.org/foundation/voting.html mentions majority twice,
and in both cases it is clear to me a majority there is defined as the
Forrest guidelines define "lazy majority".

So I don't see a need for the term "lazy majority". No need to change
in existing projects bylaws or guidelines, but IMO we should keep it
simple for the incubator.
