Since the website doesn't require much verification other than

and suggestions on the pull request should be addressed but after that
they shouldn't be considered critical objections unless explicitly
indicated). Of course explicit ACKs can be pushed immediately.
Personally, I'd advocate something more like the following:
* For content changes, send a pull request. If you don't get a response
in a reasonable time, pushing it yourself is fine.

think about ahead of time. I'd like to say that, in the event of
disagreement, we should discuss and vote on it within the committee. If
we can't resolve it (i.e., if there's not broad consensus), we should
probably take it to the Technical Cabal, since they seem to be the chief
