A participatory process is a sequence of participatory activities (e.g. first filling out a survey, then making proposals, discussing them in face-to-face or virtual meetings, and finally prioritizing them) with the aim of defining and making a decision on a specific topic.
Examples of participatory processes are: a process of electing committee members (where candidatures are first presented, then debated and finally a candidacy is chosen), participatory budgets (where proposals are made, valued economically and voted on with the money available), a strategic planning process, the collaborative drafting of a regulation or norm, the design of an urban space or the production of a public policy plan.

About this process
This process belongs to Governance
The Council manages budget, operations, personnel, fundraising, contracts, and policies.
Think of the Mautic Council as the guiding force for the Mautic project. They look after the money side of things, deciding on the budget and making sure everything financial is running as it should. They're also the ones managing the project's staff and contractors.
The Council keeps a close eye on how the project's doing overall, and they lead in figuring out how to make sure Mautic can keep growing. This includes working out plans for large-scale fundraising. They also drive the project's long-term strategy.
They're not just focused on money, either. The Council has responsibility for things like Mautic's trademarks and brand assets, and they're the ones who sign off on any contracts to do with the project. Other teams in the project can come up with policies and procedures they think are right, and the Council reviews, documents, communicates, and if everything checks out, adopts them.
They're committed to maintaining a respectful community for the project too, so they're in charge of ensuring any breaches of the Code of Conduct get dealt with properly.
Oh, and one more thing - remember that the Council isn't hiding away in some secret lair. They meet regularly to look over the project and its needs, and you can see their meeting notes and agendas because they're made public.
So in a nutshell, you might hear people talking about "Council members" or "representatives." They're just referring to the folks who make up this council.
