Re: GR status

Hi folks,

	Well, though somewhat belatedly,  I have now modified the
 vote.d.o web pages to include the second vote for the year, namely,
 the non-free GR.  I note that there are two proposals which shall go
 on the ballot, and each has the required minimum number of seconds.

	The time line for the GR is as follows:
   Date:    Proposed: January 2004
            Last Amendment: 21 February, 2004
            Discussion Starts: Sunday, February 22 23:59:59 UTC 2004
            Call For votes : Sunday, March 7 23:59:59 UTC 2004
            Voting Ends: Sunday, March 21 23:59:59 UTC 2004

	Raul's proposal is inactive.

 Proposer:  Andrew Suffield [asuffield@debian.org]
 Seconds:    1. Scott James Remnant [keybuk@debian.org]
             2. Kyle McMartin [kyle@debian.org]
             3. Clint Adams [schizo@debian.org]
             4. Tore Anderson [sfllaw@engmail.uwaterloo.ca]
             5. Branden Robinson [branden@debian.org]

   Text:    The actual text of the GR is:

                The next release of Debian will not be accompanied by a non-free
                section; there will be no more stable releases of the non-free
                section. The Debian project will cease active support of the
                non-free section. Clause 5 of the social contract is repealed.

               Since this modifies the Social Contract, thsi requires a 3:1 majority to

 Amendment  Anthony Towns [ajt@debian.org]
 Amendment   1. Stephen Stafford [bagpuss@debian.org]
 Seconds:    2. Sean 'Shaleh' Perry [shaleh@debian.org]
             3. Sven Luther [luther@debian.org]
             4. Graham Wilson [graham@debian.org]
             5. Martin Buck [mbuck@debian.org]
             6. Greg Norris [adric@debian.org]
             7. Joerg Jaspert [joerg@debian.org]
             8. Bdale Garbee [bdale@debian.org]
             9. Scott James Remnant [keybuk@debian.org]
            10. Andreas Barth [aba@debian.org]
            11. Craig Sanders [cas@debian.org]

 Amendment Text: The actual text of the amendment is:
               I propose that the Debian project resolve that:

               Acknowledging that some of our users continue to require the use of
               programs that don't conform to the Debian Free Software Guidelines, we
               reaffirm our commitment to providing the contrib and non-free areas in
               our archive for packaged versions of such software, and to providing the
               use of our infrastructure (such as our bug-tracking system and mailing
               lists) to help with the maintenance of non-free software packages.

               The Rationale for the amendment is also available. This amedment only
               requires a simple majority to pass.
