I see.  Hrm.  It's curious that you never raised this objection during
the process.

We very recently passed the amendments to the Constitution which give
our rules for amending the Social Contract.  I don't recall you
complaining that the quorum required was too low, but maybe I missed

Nor was this half the number that usually votes.  The last DPL
election and GR were extraordinary; this vote was about the usual
number.  Go look at the history.

I believe that any serious problem here is one that the release
manager created.  I'm happy to address it.
