we already have a formal method:
 - change is proposed ahead of time like any other business for council to 
review (which means the community sees it)
 - council votes and assuming it passed
 - the dev/council lists are notified of changes (see previous summaries for 
example)
 - if there is still no problems, then the project page/GLEP is amended 
officially

if the dev community has a problem, then it should have come up like any other 
issue along the way.  if the only way to resolve the greater dev concerns is 
with a vote, then that is how it goes.  needing a full community vote all the 
time is a huge time waste for absolutely no gain.
