        I have explained why I think all these proposals are related
 (they all affect releasing lenny  while kernels contain firmware blobs,
 and some of the solutions have effects that are more far reaching than
 others).  Since they are related, they belong on the same ballot --
 even if they were not all formally declared to be "amendments" of the
 original proposal.

        Our voting methods do not deal well with related options being
 on separate ballots.
