What is asked from the Secretary is not to avoid conflict.
It is not even to not participate in the conflict – there’s not reason
why he couldn’t have his own opinion.

What this position requires is the minimal level of morality to not use
it to favor an opinion or another. And this is something Manoj has been
repeatedly doing; first in the GFDL GR, next in the etch firmwares GR,
now in the lenny one.

I do not trust anymore the Secretary, and I do not trust sufficiently
the result of this vote. If the otherwise winning option is dismissed by
the lack of a 3:1 majority (for which the requirements are still “Manoj
said so”), or if a winning option is dismissed by a completely unrelated
other option that was not proposed as an amendment, it won’t be possible
to consider the vote result as the decision of the project as a whole.
