Errors in the Kafka by-laws

Hello,

Your bylaws have an erroneous definition of lazy consensus:

> Lazy consensus requires 3 binding +1 votes and no binding vetoes.

Lazy consensus is "silence is consent", and requires no +1 votes. The
correct term for what your by-laws describe here is consensus
approval.

The Apache Hadoop bylaws have the correct definitions:

Hope this helps!

Thanks,
