	Some People usually disagree with almost any statement of
 substance  on can make.

	Again, you should do more research. The title of the GR was
 proposed by the proposer:   debian-vote, 22 Feb 2004, on GR status
 Message-ID: <20040222195210.GA5776@suffields.me.uk>

	I saw no reason to change what the proposer suggested as the
 title, and no one, including you, objected.

	I'm sorry, I just think you are quibbling in hid sight because
 you do not like the vote results.

 If people do not like the title selected by the proposer, they should
 speak up _before_ the fact; and  suggest alternatiuves, and not rail
 against the secretary and, without proof, accuse him of substituting
 his opinion in the GR title.
