The true threshold for significance is 25%, since Debian can amend the
constitution with a 3:1 vote.  But for this discussion, I put it
around 5%.  Enough so that multiple posters on this list express that
view, not just two or three.  I counted about 170 unique posters in
the last month, though that is definitely an overcount, as they didn't
all comment on this discussion.  That would put significance around 8
