Unlike the academic world there is little mileage in documenting this process.  
I suggest that if you really want to know how decisions are made you google 
for the relevant development mailing lists - there are many, because many 
refer to their own project only - and read archives.  It is there and on IRC 
sessions, of which there will be no public archive, where most decisions will 
be made - other, that is, than on the 'sprints' where a group of developers 
meet up physically to work on specific issues.
