Show me a project where there is a 100% agreement and then I will show
you a good project.

We decide in common. And if there is a civil war, I take a decision.
But the LDP is a community and we try to discuss and work altogether.

There are decisions. But sometimes there aren't, too.

If the decision is evident (see the slackware doc idea) no need to vote.
In our case, it is better not to take any decision immediately :
When all the docbook tools, HOWTO, and authors help will be as usable as
linuxdoc tools, then a decision will be proposed.

If there is no agreement, then we will vote.
