When somebody leads the discussion, many people participate, and the
result is a consensus. The discussion leader usually finishes by
documenting the final design in a document (look in /trunk/notes/ for
examples of past feature designs.)

Whenever someone (or group of people) find time/energy/interest to code
the final design. There's no formality here. Anyone is free to just
start working. What's important is to work out in the open, and get
feedback as you go.

New work is done on trunk. Trunk is released every 4-6 months or so.

If new work is tricky, risky, or unstable, then it's developed on a
feature branch. When the feature is done, the feature branch is merged
to trunk. Then the feature is "released" whenever trunk is next released.
