Again, would be followed by my clause 2 re amendments.
=== TC RESOLUTION STARTS ===
1. The Debian Technical Committee hereby exercises its power in 4.2(1)
of the Debian Constitution to propose a General Resolution,
and according to A.1(1) the TC also proposes an amendment.
The proposed texts of the two resulting options for the General

----- GENERAL RESOLUTION STARTS, COMMON INTRODUCTORY TEXT -----
Advice to the TC on overruling maintainers
In the past the Technical Committee have been slow and reluctant
to overrule a maintainer unless all the members are absolutely
convinced that the maintainer's decision was wrong.
The TC has sought the views of the Developers. Accordingly, the
Developers advise, in their (non-binding) opinion, that:
----- GENERAL RESOLUTION OPTION A -----
The Technical Committee's approach so far has been correct.
----- GENERAL RESOLUTION OPTION B -----
Technical Committee members should be willing to vote to overrule if
they feel that the maintainer's decision was wrong; the
supermajority requirement is sufficient to guard against overruling
in questionable cases.
