Well, therre are two answers from my side:
1. (rather a question) Do you want to tell me with this mail that
I should add "non of the above" to the poll. Honestly I've
thought about this, but I decided to leave it out because this
option makes only sense in condorset votings. And yes, when
preparing the pool I feeled urgend need for rating like in
condorset method. IMHO it is reasonable to watch what happens.
If there is a really clear winner then we can decide. If not
I volunteer to try another means.
2. I'm personally perfectly against only "Debian". The rationale
behind this is that I want to build a stronger connection between
groups inside Debian who might share the same techniques and
gain from synergy effects. If we fail to make this clear by
a common name people will continue to reinvent wheels inside
Debian and chances of higher success of these projects are
