At Wicket we didn't bother to pick bylaws and from what I have seen in
other communities we are better for it. Graduation from the incubator
is a testament that the community acts as a meritocracy, and the
bylaws of the foundation should be good for all graduated projects. As
a community I think that Wicket developers never even bothered to look
at the bylaws and just follow the established processes and guidances
that trickle down from board@.

Looking at httpd, they don't have explicit bylaws either–my google fu
did not unearth any document at that constitutes
