To me the ultimate reference is - decisions are made by
consensus (*) which can be expressed by a majority vote with a least
three +1s, and vetoes are only valid for code changes.

(*) consensus being defined as "widespread agreement among people with
decision power", as opposed to unanimity - because the latter might
block progress
