-## Decision Making
-
-The most important thing about engaging with any Apache project is that everyone
-is equal. All people with an opinion are entitled to express that opinion and, where 
-appropriate, have it considered by the community.
-
-To some the idea of having to establish consensus in a large and distributed team 
-sounds inefficient and frustrating. Don't despair though, The Apache Way has a
-set of simple processes to ensure things proceed at a good pace.
-
-In ASF projects we don't like to vote. We reserve that for the few things that need 
-official approval for legal or process reasons (e.g. a release or a new committer). 
-Most of the time we work with the consensus building techniques documented below.
-
-
-### Lazy Consensus
-
-[Lazy consensus][10] is the first, and possibly the most important, consensus building 
-tool we have. Essentially lazy consensus means that you don't need to get explicit
-approval to proceed, but you need to be prepared to listen if someone objects.
-
-### Consensus Building
-
-Sometimes lazy consensus is not appropriate. In such cases it is necessary to
-make a proposal to the mailing list and discuss options. There are mechanisms
-for quickly showing your support or otherwise for a proposal and 
-[building consensus][11] amongst the community.
-
-Once there is a consensus people can proceed with the work under the [lazy 
-consensus][12] model.
-
-### Voting
-
-Occasionally a "feel" for consensus is not enough. Sometimes we need to 
-have a measurable consensus. For example, when [voting][13] in new committers or 
-to approve a release.
