At the First Congress of the RSDLP in 1898, the Bund entered the party on the basis of "autonomy." Soon after the 1898 Congress, however, the RSDLP was declared illegal and driven underground.
Under "federation," however, neither the RSDLP Central Committee nor the RSDLP's highest body--the elected Party Congress--would be able to overrule decisions taken by the Bund in matters pertaining to the Jewish proletariat.
The RSDLP was organized on the basis of "democratic centralism." In other words, it was a party which maximized opportunities for internal debate, but which acted as one after an issue had been decided by majority vote.

 The Origins of the Jews - Part Four
The position of the Bolsheviks was that the fight against all forms of chauvinism required the unification of all the workers in a single party.
In 1903, at the second RSDLP congress after the majority of Bolsheviks and Mensheviks refused to recognize the Bund as the sole representative of the Jewish working class, the Bundists split.
Lenin was very aware of the terrible oppression of the Jews, who were suffering from systematic discrimination, were subject to bloody pogroms, and forced to live in the Pales (a series of laws were established by the Monarchy determining where Jews could settle in the Empire, these regions later were called the Pale of Settlement.

While the SDs regarded workers as the only wholly revolutionary class in Russia, some of the peasantry were considered revolutionary, though the wealthy peasants (the kulaks) were seen as reactionary.
This would help lead to the inevitable split in the party over stagism: with some arguing that reformism is necessary before revolution, and by the same logic, that captialism is necessary before socialism.
Where this is the case it is noted R.S.D.L.P. (M) or R.S.D.L.P. (B) for the Mensheviki and Bolsheviki parties respectively.

The boycottists were strongest among that layer of committee-men, including Stalin who was attending his first party meeting abroad, who considered that their practical knowledge of the situation in Russia was sufficient to place them on a superior plane to the party theoreticians, even to Lenin himself.
The RSDLP had attempted to boycott the elections, and then, when it became clear that the masses were participating, did a hasty about-face, but too late to recover lost ground.
The Menshevik CC of the RSDLP circulated to the Party organisations a resolution proposing to support the Cadet Duma’s demand for a Duma—that is a Cadet—ministry.

 [Marxism] A final reply to critics   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
Suffice to say that in reality, in the 1917 revolution, militant workers were much ahead of the RSDLP party "committee men" and initially the RSDLP party had very little control over what happened.
Throughout the eventful year of 1917 there were a lot of heated debates about what direction party organisations should take, and a great deal of uncertainty.
What you can say is, that at crucial points the RSDLP was able to provide real leadership in the process, more so than many other parties, which in turn boosted its membership base.

Resolution on the National Question- 7th Congress of RSDLP (B) by Lenin
The policy of national oppression, inherited from the autocracy and monarchy; is maintained by the landowners, capitalists, and petty bourgeoisie in order to protect their class privileges and to cause disunity among the workers of the various nationalities.
Only the merging of the workers of the various nationalities into such common organisations will make it possible for the proletariat to wage a successful struggle against international Capital and bourgeois nationalism.

In Lenin’s words, the task “is to create a real revolutionary workers’ party.” However, the discussion sessions took such a compelling turn that the Conference ended up adopting not merely a programme but a programme-based party of a new kind.
The principle task, as we have said, before the second congress of the RSDLP was to set up the programme of the Party.
Lenin knew very well that the programme adopted by the RSDLP would serve as the basis for drawing up of Party programmes by the Communist Parties in various countries.
