Here it is - with some other changes while I was at it. (I also couldn't
find the references to ballot@vote.d.o in the CFVs. Should there be some?)

   ===== ==== === ===== === === ====== ======= ====== ======== ====

     Voting period starts      00:00:01 UTC on Sunday,   March 30th, 2009
     Votes must be received by 23:59:59 UTC on Saturday, April 12th, 2009

This vote is being conducted as required by the Debian Constitution.
You may see the constitution at http://www.debian.org/devel/constitution.
For voting questions contact secretary@debian.org.

The details of the candidate platforms can be found at:


First, read the full text of the platforms and rebuttals.

To cast a vote, it is necessary to send this ballot, with the text form
filled out, to a dedicated e-mail address, in a signed message,
as described below.

The form is contained at the bottom of this message, marked with two lines
containing the characters '-=-=-=-=-=-'. Do not erase anything between
those lines, and do not change the choice names.

There are 4 choices in the form, which you may rank with numbers between
1 and 4. In the brackets next to your preferred choice, place a 1.
Place a 2 in the brackets next to your next choice. Continue until you
reach your last choice.

You may skip numbers, leave some choices unranked, and rank options equally.
Unranked choices are considered equally the least desired choices,
and ranked below all ranked choices.

To vote "no, no matter what", rank "None Of The Above" as more desirable than
the unacceptable choices, or you may rank the "None Of The Above" choice
and leave choices you consider unacceptable blank.
(Note: if the "None Of The Above" choice is unranked, then it is equal to
all other unranked choices, if any -- no special consideration is given to
the "None Of The Above" choice by the voting software).

Finally, mail the filled out ballot to: leader2009@vote.debian.org.

Don't worry about spacing of the columns or any quote characters (">") that
your reply inserts.

The vote must be GPG signed (or PGP signed) with your key that is in the
Debian keyring. The voting software (Devotee) accepts mail that either
contains only an unmangled OpenPGP message (RFC 2440 compliant), or
a PGP/MIME mail (RFC 3156 compliant). You may, if you wish, choose to
send a signed, encrypted ballot.

- - -=-=-=-=-=- Don't Delete Anything Between These Lines =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
[   ] Choice 1: John Doe 1
[   ] Choice 2: John Doe 2
[   ] Choice 3: John Doe 3
[   ] Choice 4: None Of The Above
- - -=-=-=-=-=- Don't Delete Anything Between These Lines =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-


The responses to a valid vote shall be signed by the vote key created
for this vote. The public key for the vote, signed by the Project
secretary, is appended below.


     2. That which causes joy or happiness.
