Well on the one hand announcing plans is
never a bad thing, we don't want to instill

to be pre-negotiated prior to execution.
Part of the Apache Way, and in fact the supporting
version control systems, is to allow concurrent
activity to proceed largely unimpeded.  Only
when conflicts happen does there need to be
a discussion about intentions.

This "non-coordinated" workflow is what we
mean when we refer to concepts like CTR or
JFDI.  It can be a difficult lesson for a
large group to ultimately adopt, but is something
we should aspire to at least until it proves
