From what I see it works better than it used to on p5p.

I think it's mostly because they have more of an "okay, that's what
the vote/majority/consensus told us or that was the only
implementation we got and it's better than what we had before - so
get over it and move on" attitude.

Fewer people. And fewer complex choices in the project (there is
plenty of hard choices in the apache project, but it's still "only"
a webserver and not something as big and flexible as a programming
language).

Thinking about it, the voting/veto system and the thing with giving
authority to members/committers are probably a significant part of
what gives the attitude for "okay, it's decided. stop beating the
horse, it's dead. so let's move on."

okay, I'm repeating myself now. Time to sleep. :)
