It's mainly done along the lines of the Rough Spots page, or the
current thread about Ajax.

In the end, the only votes that matter are code. Struts is generally a
Commit-Then-Review project. If a committer feels that a change will
meet the general consensus, then he or she makes the commit. If
someone disagrees with the change, he or she can toss a -1, and we can
continue the discussion.

It's less about voting and more about collaboration. Voting on code is
something we tend to do only when there isn't clear agreement, or when
there are multiple implementations on the table.

XWork features should be handled through the XWork project.

The items listed here are those that seemed to have a lot of buy-in
from the people contributing to the rough spots page. It's not meant
to be an exhaustive list. Anything on the list is also contingent on
someone writing the code.
