How is policy decided?

While it makes sense for floppies, it's pretty wrong for a big enough hard
disk, from a stability point of view.

There are a couple of policy decisions I've got strong disagreements with --
the worst is the relationship between /usr/include and the kernel header
files.  I think it's potentially *disasterous* to have files in /usr/include
that aren't in sync with the local kernel.

Anyway, I guess I just want to know where to go to most effectively lobby.
