To be "lead" in the project never has been a question of
power but of responsibility.

Their only power is the power of those who do. It's the same for other
officers in the project.

I read, there is no single vision on how PMCs should run a project and
the communities they host. So I think the community can
create or better bring in its own customary constitution even it's
hosted by Apache. is a little bit different from other Apache projects.
That makes sense to gover it in a different way.
