On the other hand, I would like to say I am entirely happy with the way
that Manoj has handled the vote and do not see a problem with voting on
everything at once. This ballot is essentially deciding what to do with
Lenny with some justification behind the choices. I think that having
the 'outcomes' matrix on the website with the list of 'release/wait',
'permanent/temporary exception', 'delegate/don't delegate' for each

As Julien has pointed out, choices 2 and 3 re not the same and that we
have precedent for the overriding options requiring 3:1.

However, I think retitling 5 to: "Assume firmware blobs are in source
form unless proven otherwise" is worthwhile as is retitling 1 to: "Delay
Lenny release until all DFSG issues are resolved".

I wouldn't say this is the secretary trying to skew anything, I just
think that it makes the meaning of the choices slightly clearer. If
people read the text below then it is clear.
