About this section
Every project in Apache has resolutions that they vote on. Decisions are made, etc. But what happens once those decisions are made? They are archived in the mail list archive never to be read again (once its not in the top 10 or so posts). So they get discussed again and again.
Rather than have that big waste of time, we have this section to record important POI decisions. Once a decision is passed it need only be linked to this page (either by creating a page for it or by simply linking it to the archive messages). Wherever possible a brief about how many votes for and against an maybe some background should be posted.
This section is intended mainly to reduce big waste of time discussions from taking away from whats important...developing POI! :-D
