Rob, will you please take this back-and-forth to the f*cking [DISCUSS] thread where it is likely
that anyone interesting in the Forums question will see it?

 - Dennis

Sure.  In an Apache project, there are only a few situations were we
require a vote.  One is to approve new committers or PMC members.
Another is to approve a release.  For other decisions we operate by
"lazy consensus".  This means that if there are no objections to a
proposal, then the person who makes the proposal can go forward and
implement it.  No vote is required.

I'd prefer that we do not have an unnecessary vote when there is a
clear consensus to go forward with the forums.  Having unnecessary
votes might suggest that in the future other decisions might be
deficient if they do not also have unnecessary votes.  I don't want to
set that expectation.  I don't want us to make the decision making
process in the project less efficient.

JFDI mean "Just F***n'  Do It".  In other words, once it is clear that
there are no objections, then stop talking about, just do it.  The
idea is to eliminate needless discussion on the list.  There are many
other things we need to discuss  and resolve.  We should take the
proposals that we agree on off the list and start implementing them.

So thanks for submitting the proposal.  It was discussed and no one
objected.  Congratulations.  Now the hard work begins....
