I believe that "bylaws" are required. At least the creation of
bylaws is mentioned in the TLP resolutions I have read last year.
While all projects are part of the ASF, they still have different
ways to handle code review, release preparation, project plans,
and so on.
A "charter" serves to define the scope of a project, but I've
seen projects that just use their TLP resolution to that end.
Of course I've also seen both terms being used interchangeably :-)
