A recall vote falls under §4.1.1 of the constitution, and a position
statement such as the one you proposed falls under §4.1.5.  I'm not sure if
these belong on the same ballot?  I guess it's not so different from having
a ballot where some options amend foundation documents and others don't.

FWIW dunc-tank.org does not say that it is run by Anthony and Steve; they
are listed as two members of a five-member board.  So it seems a strange
defense against accusations of abusing his position to at the same time
claim he's "running" an organization that he doesn't claim to run :-)

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