<http://incubator.apache.org/drafts/glossary.html>

The ASF Bylaws are a component of its legal status as a non-profit 
corporation. ASF projects may also publish bylaws and guidelines 
for the project's internal use. Of course, the official ASF Bylaws 
supercede any bylaw or guideline published by one of its projects. 
If a conflict is detected, the matter may be brought to the 
attention of the project's <a href="#PMC">Management Committee
</a>.

User

contribute to the Apache projects by providing feedback to 
developers in the the form of bug reports and feature suggestions. 
As well, users participate in the Apache community by helping 
other users on mailing lists and user support forums."
