governance: expand use of CTC issue tracker

As the CTC grows and has representation from more time zones, we need to
embrace asynchronous decision making and rely less on the actual
meeting. This change is a proposal for that which, ironically, probably
has to be approved at a meeting.

Due to the challenges of scheduling a global meeting with participants in
several timezones, the CTC will seek to resolve as many agenda items as possible
outside of meetings using
[the CTC issue tracker](https://github.com/nodejs/CTC/issues). The process in
the issue tracker is:
* A CTC member opens an issue explaining the proposal/issue and @-mentions
@nodejs/ctc.
* After 72 hours, if there are two or more `LGTM`s from other CTC members and no
explicit opposition from other CTC members, then the proposal is approved.
* If there are any CTC members objecting, then a conversation ensues until
either the proposal is dropped or the objecting members are persuaded. If
there is an extended impasse, a motion for a vote may be made.
