I am proposing a blog for the project to be hosted on the blogs.apache.org site. There was a similar proposal last year on the dev list [1], but no vote or decision. Apache has a web page with setup instructions [2], which also states that the PMC is responsible for the blog content and for granting write access to the blog. The process for setting up a blog is easy and defined in [2].
To move forward I think we need to resolve some items:

1. The bylaws don't define how to vote on blog content, but the default vote is in a Lazy Approval fashion, with no defined timeframe. I’m thinking 3 days. Since the PMC is responsible for the content, should we enforce something different, say, consensus or majority approval from active PMC members over 3 days?

2. Guidelines for content. If we accept cross-posts from other sites or blog posts from guest writers (non-contributors, non-committers), what rules should be enforced (PMC is responsible for content)? For any author, can their employer or employer's products be mentioned?

3. Do the articles need to be Apache licensed?
