My impression is that voting is done on the list with +1,0,-1 tabulation.  That is how ballots
have happened on the PPMC and it is how the ballots on the general@incubator are conducted.

The only case I can foresee off hand that might lead to [VOTE], if a [DISCUSS] does not demonstrate
consensus, might be over the name of the project, the deliverable, and the domains of web
sites once has transferred to Apache and we know the ASF policy, legal, and
trademark constraints that have to be honored.

Is this done through a rudimentary process of +1 on mailing lists or is
there an app to perform quick polling campaings?
