The clause being changed by choice number 3 is clause number 10. It
would add a new license that the project definitely considers to be
free. There, happy? :)

The secretary's, as per 7.1.3. Feel free to propose a GR to override
his decision.

On a related topic, should the constitution define that overriding a
decision by the secretary conserning 7.1.3 requires a 3:1
supermajority? Currently it is entirely possible for a simple majority
of the developers to bypass the constitution.
