You are making a permanent change to the statement made in the
DFSG (all programs need source code); this is being passed with a 3:1
majority, so of course the foundation documnents will have to be
changed. The only way to supersede the foundation document, as defined
in the constitution, is to change it via a 3:1 vote. This is the only
way to reconcile the GR with the constitution, in my opinion.
