I haven't done much, just used pointers to the guidelines of Jakarta,
httpd and to incubator onto a single page.  Mixes well with what
you've done.

Do you want us to track the feedback inside the file - in addition to
on this list - or do you want to maintain the file based on feedback

First feedback (after reading the doc once) from myself:

* should invitation of committers be "lazy consensus" instead of
  consensus?  It is at Jakarta and I'm afraid we'd not match the
  quorum otherwise.

* Approval of the chairman by 3/4 majority?  Works for me, but again
  I'm afraid we'll run into trouble with the quorum, unless we get
  serious with "forcing" people into emeritus state.

* I'd like to drop the "six months" as time before developers
  "usually" become committers.  This is longer than it has been for many
  of us committers (far longer in my case 8-).  I'm not sure, I'd
  simply drop any time-frame at all.
