[VOTE] change in bylaws to remove Release Plan vote
This was previously discussed in the thread "[PROPOSAL] change in bylaws to
remove Release Plan vote".  13 people explicitly cast "+1"s in that thread.
 Absent objection I will count those as votes without requiring them to
(re-)respond to this VOTE thread.

The following change is proposed in the
Bylaws<http://hadoop.apache.org/bylaws.html>
 document:

==
1. In the "Decision Making" : "Actions" section of the Bylaws, the
following text is removed:

** Release Plan*

Defines the timetable and actions for a release. The plan also nominates a
Release Manager.

Lazy majority of active committers
2. In the "Roles and Responsibilities" section of the Bylaws, an additional
role is defined:

** Release Manager*

A Release Manager (RM) is a committer who volunteers to produce a Release
Candidate according to
HowToRelease<https://wiki.apache.org/hadoop/HowToRelease>.
 The RM shall publish a Release Plan on the *common-dev@* list stating the
branch from which they intend to make a Release Candidate, at least one
week before they do so. The RM is responsible for building consensus around
the content of the Release Candidate, in order to achieve a successful
Product Release vote.

Best regards,
--Matt (long-time release manager)
