"Non-trivial" seems a little weak to require a [VOTE] (which by the
bylaws of apache require three +1s??).  I could see major
architectural decisions requiring a vote, but I think a single review
is sufficient for committing most patches.

Another issue is backward compatibility.  It might be a good idea to
develop some guidelines in this regard (perhaps "functionality that is
being changed requires @deprecation in at least one minor version
before being changed").  We can support it for longer than that, of
course, but it would be nice to provide some guarantee.
