 <p>Your first engagement with the project should be to subscribe to our

-<h2 id="decision_making">Decision Making</h2>
-<p>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.</p>
-<p>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.</p>
-<p>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.</p>

-<p><a href="/openofficeorg/docs/governance/lazyConsensus.html">Lazy consensus</a>
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.</p>
-<h3 id="consensus_building">Consensus Building</h3>
-<p>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

-<p>Once there is a consensus people can proceed with the work under the <a href="/openofficeorg/docs/governance/lazyConsensus.html">lazy

-<h3 id="voting">Voting</h3>
-<p>Occasionally a "feel" for consensus is not enough. Sometimes we need to 
-have a measurable consensus. For example, when <a href="/openofficeorg/docs/governance/voting.html">voting</a>
