As I understand it, it goes like this:
Choice 1 -> Main Proposal (Charles Plessy) + Lucas Nussbaum's Amendment A
Choice 2 -> Peter Palfrader's Amendment
Choice 3 -> Lucas Nussbaum's Amendment B
Peter started proposing an amendment to Charles proposal,
but it become an alternative because they agreed on have both
options, and Lucas added the directly opposite option so people
instead of vote "Further Discussion" can explicitly vote: "Go
ahead and do it".
One way or the other, and if I'm not totally wrong, the
main proposal was "amended", the final result of texts and short
lines should reflect the consensus on changing a proposal or
adding an alternative.
It seems that the "mapping" between the proposal and
amendments is not direct, it requires combining the proposal
and the amendments. :)
Hope this helps.
