The difference seems to be the quorum requirement of 3 +1 votes in the
case of "consensus" but not in "unanimous consensus".

They use "unanimous consensus" in that document only for removals.
Removals at Apache are instead typically consensus-but-one (the person
being removed) although some projects specify a 2/3 or 3/4
super-majority instead.

Another discrepancy with standard Apache policy and that document is
that they don't require 3 +1 votes for a release.
