Re: Formal CFV: General Resolution to Abolish Non-Free

I suppose it's important to point out that I, as secretary, havn't seen any
sponsorships.  The archives for debian-vote show only the proposal and one
objection and this email.  Note, the webpage doesn't seem to have been
updated yet but the real archive is at /debian2/web/lists on master.

Not so.. the call for vote can only come from the proposer or one of the

A.6.8 states (sic) that if no quorum is required it means a simple majority
(effectivly a quorum of 1) is needed.
