== Conflicts Between a Team and Project Policy
If a team wishes to disobey a project-wide policy, they *must* do so with the explicit approval of the rest of the project.
This approval *must* be gotten through a xref:voting.adoc[Vote].
Doing otherwise is grounds for dissolution.

== Conflicts Between a Subteam and its Parent
If a parent team disagrees with a child, the team with the highest specificity normally wins out.
For example, if the packaging team and the python team disagree on a flag to pass to python's configure script, the python team has priority.
If the parent team believes the matter to be vital, they may call for a xref:voting.adoc[Vote].
