The vast majority have a core group that's in charge and voting happens only
within that group (if it happens at all), in some cases membership in this group
is by election.
Debian has formal elections/votes and qualifications to be a Debian Developer,
and even they end up with arguments about how this excludes people who are
providing valuable service to Debian
Unfortunantely there is no "right way" to do govern a project. Just about any
scheme you dream up will find both successful and unsuccessful examples.
