> It is published on the developer and user mailing lists and community members 
> vote about it.
> -It is necessary in the following cases:
> Change that breaks API compatibility, merge of a branch, change in development

> -Procedure: 
> Author publishes RFC on qgis-developer and qgis-user lists
> Community votes in the next 5 working days with -1, 0, +1
> Finished RFCs are stored and are available on the website, together with the 
> voting result
