For the record, this is not the full text of the votable resolution which I
proposed; the preceding text was preambulatory text, not rationale, and was
submitted as part of the resolution itself.  This is mostly irrelevant now
since it's been withdrawn, but the proposers of the other resolutions may
want to confirm that the full text of their resolution has been cited.  In
particular, I believe Josselin's proposal was initially submitted as an
amendment to mine changing only the last point, which would logically mean
this preambulatory text is missing from his as well, leaving him with a GR
that begins with the silly opening phrase "The Debian project therefore".

Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
