Subject Apache Zest by-laws
Date Wed, 08 Jul 2015 18:00:48 GMT
A discussion erupted recently on ComDev (Community Development mailing
list, open to all I think) about project specific by-laws.

It was highlighted that the Board resolution for creating projects
instructs the PMC to create the by-laws for the project.

The conclusion of that thread was roughly;
  1. Projects are allowed to craft their own by-laws.

   2. When this text was created, it was not known how easy it is to get
things wrong.

    3. Over time, many/most projects operated without explicit by-laws.

    4. Board would assume, if intervening, that the HTTPd project's by-laws
would apply by default.

     5. It would be better for the project to spell it out on its own
website.

So, I suggest that we all take a look at the HTTPd's by-laws and bring up
anything we have questions about, disagrees with or perhaps don't
understand.

However I can't find those right now, unless what people mean are the
"guidelines"... http://httpd.apache.org/dev/guidelines.html

The immediate thing is Commit-Then-Review vs Review-Then-Commit. Almost no
projects do RTC for 'develop', only for changes in stable branches.
In general RTC slows down progress a bit, and I don't think we need it,
although in reality we are doing it with feature branches....

Cheers
