[jira] Created: (INCUBATOR-38) Policy neutral change reduces verbal padding and adds link to proposal guide

JIRA jira@apache.org
Policy neutral change reduces verbal padding and adds link to proposal guide
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: INCUBATOR-38
                 URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INCUBATOR-38
             Project: Incubator
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: policy
            Reporter: Robert Burrell Donkin
         Assigned To: Robert Burrell Donkin


This change removes an necessary paragraph and adds an extra sentence linking to the proposal guide.

The phrasing of the policy has been changed without (I hope) altering it's meaning. This changes increases the consistency of usage of the terms.
