When Frederik accepted the proposed amendment, Manoj was no longer the
proposer. Furthermore, the title of a voting option on the ballot is
perfectly meaningless. Attempts by the secretary to make them
informative are appreciated, but any voter who actually pays any
attention to them should be voting the null ballot, as they clearly
haven't informed themselves appropriately.
Finally, there's no reason to crosspost this stuff to multiple lists;
complaints about the form of the ballot belong on -vote.
Il semble que la perfection soit atteinte non quand il n'y a plus rien
a ajouter, mais quand il n'y a plus rien a retrancher.
(Perfection is apparently not achieved when nothing more can be added,
but when nothing else can be removed.)
