    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 Clause 5 of the social contract is repealed.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 Text The actual text of the amendment is:
               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.
