Awesomeness.  Please check it into the docs.  And if we are ever working 
in the same place someday, I would love to work through a number of 
"Apache Governance 101" slides with you, since I have nice clear 
pictures in my head, but have zero ability to make cool slides like you do.

If I were to nitpick:

- The top blue box with "Podling" is really an "outside community" - 
i.e. some group of people with an idea and some code who are not working 
on that idea at Apache yet.  Not sure what the best word is - candidate 
or proposal both work OK.  I would suggest *not* calling that a podling.

Instead, the last box at the bottom should be "Podling" or "Incubating 
Podling" instead of just "Incubate".

I like the idea of using feathers in some places, although personally 
having the different feathers pointing in different directions drives me 

- I might update the "Feedback" to also include "[Discuss]" or the like. 
  I.e. we have pretty clear understandings that you come along, make a 
specific proposal, then the whole community specifically discusses the 
proposal for a while.  Then the vote.

Yay diagrams.  Thanks!
