Amendment: Enhance requirements for General resolutions


and here is the promised amendment which will require a maximum of
floor(Q) developers to second a GR.

General Resolutions are an important framework within the Debian
Project. Yet, in a project the size of Debian, the current requirements
to initiate one are too small.

Therefore the Debian project resolves that
 a) The constitution gets changed to not require K developers to sponsor
    a resolution, but floor(Q). [see §4.2(1)]
 b) Delaying a decision of a Delegate or the DPL [§4.2(2.2)],
    as well as resolutions against a shortening of discussion/voting
    period or to overwrite a TC decision [§4.2(2.3)] requires floor(Q)
    developers to sponsor the resolution.
 c) the definition of K gets erased from the constitution. [§4.2(7)]

(Numbers in brackets are references to sections in the constitution).

Practical changes: Taking the definitions of the latest GR we had,

 Current Developer Count = 1018
 Q ( sqrt(#devel) / 2 ) = 15.9530561335438
 K min(5, Q )           = 5
 Quorum  (3 x Q )       = 47.8591684006314

this will mean that future GRs would need 15 other people to support
your idea.
