I think this is wrong. And here is why:

The vote was actually two votes:

a) Should Debian respond publicly as a project? (the "if)
b) How should such a response read? (the "how")

And I feel that a) should receive a supermajority before b) can be decided by a
normal majority.

FWIW: I don't believe in any of the bullshit written here that Debian should
stay neutral or that this vote backs up that Debian should stay neutral. The
vote was about a very specific case. It might have gone differently if we would
have voted about a Harvey Weinstein or another Hans Reiser within the FOSS
