  Just for review, we approved the following GR:

The Debian Project,

affirming its commitment to principles of freeness for all works it 

but recognizing that changing the Social Contract today would have grave 
consequences for the upcoming stable release, a fact which does not serve our 
goals or the interests of our users,

hereby resolves:

   1. that the amendments to the Social Contract contained within the General 
Resolution Editorial Amendments To The Social Contract (2004 vote 003) be 
immediately rescinded;
   2. that these amendments, which have already been ratified by the Debian 
Project, will be reinstated immediately after the release of the next stable 
version of Debian, without further cause for deliberation.

  "amendments" in this context are changes in wording.  The GR rescinded the 
amendments that the previous GR enacted, with the proviso that they will be 
reinstated in sarge.

     Hope that clears things up,
