So we've been discussing within the release team the decision whether to
treat the security team's request as RC, and we're split on the question;
the decision has been made that the release team will instead refer this
decision to the TC under 6.1.3 of the constitution.

Since that makes this a referred decision rather than an override, a simple
majority should therefore be sufficient to decide in either direction.
Further, it's my understanding that there's no requirement for Andi or I to
abstain.  (Not that I think it's likely to affect the vote outcome, given
that we were split on the question to begin with. ;)

Following is a ballot for the question of bug #413926.  I've drafted two
separate ballot options to allow the TC to vote the full range of
preferences under Condorcet; hopefully, 'further discussion' will rank low
on everyone's ballots anyway. :)  As far as I'm concerned no verbose
resolution is needed here, feel free to consider the one-line description to
be the full text of the resolution.

I'm calling for an immediate vote, in the hopes that this decision can be
made without impact to the etch release timeline.

  In the brackets next to your preferred choice, place a 1. Place a 2 in
  the brackets next to your next choice.  Continue until you reach your last
  choice.  Do not enter a number smaller than 1 or larger than 3.  You may
  skip numbers.  You may rank options equally (as long as all choices X you
  make fall in the range 1 <= X <= 3).

  To vote "no, no matter what" rank "Further discussion" as more
  desirable than the unacceptable choices, or You may rank the "Further
  discussion" choice, and leave choices you consider unacceptable
  blank. Unranked choices are considered equally the least desired
  choices, and ranked below all ranked choices. (Note: if the Further
  Discussion choice is unranked, then it is equal to all other unranked
  choices, if any.)
