+consensus building and decision making. The vast majority of decisions are made
+using <a href="/committers/lazyConsensus.html">lazy consensus</a>, if the "lazy"
approach to consensus building is deemed
+unsuitable for a particular decision then we seek to <a href="/committers/consensusBuilding.html">build

+making</a> here on the community development site.</p>
