 I'm fine with reaffirming the social contract.

 I want these three too.

 I strongly disagree with this.

 I support this proposal; even if I understand it will not bring us very
 far and we'd have better use of our time than fighting this over.

 This ballot is nonsense:
   a) I want to decide on requirements of source of firmwares AND allow
      lenny to release with DFSG violations AND "proprietary" firmware
      AND empower the release team to release with DFSG violations
   b) why have a "reaffirm the social contract" option when we have
      "further discussion"?  We all agreed to honor the social contract

 Apart of the noise of choice 1, this ballot doesn't empower us to
 decide on the 4 different questions.

 So I understand that we intend to honor all choices which beat NOTA,
 i.e. not only the highest ranked choice.
