Unfortunately the above proposal is not seconded by Anthony Towns, nor I can find a statement from him on debian-vote on whether he would in fact reinstate it if this GR was successful. Given the Release Manager decision after last vote was a surprise for most of us, It seems not unreasonnable to want a clear statement of Anthony Towns before proceding further with this GR. Reaching a more consensual position is certainly a laudable goal, but it is difficult to do when one party do not want to participate in the discussion, as happened during the last vote. This new GR would have been appropriate as a ballot option for the previous vote. Cheers, -- Bill. <firstname.lastname@example.org> Imagine a large red swirl here.
