I am rescinding this amendment. Please second Lucas amendment instead,
which has a cleaner wording.

I would like to offer an apology for the fact that this proposal seemed to
imply that the first GR was in 2003. This was an honest mistake.
While there have been no GR in 2000-2002, GR were passed in 1999, though
vote.debian.org lists them differently. 
"constitution" passed in 1998 is not really a GR since the constitution
was not ratified yet.
Neither "Logo License" nor "new logos" required seconds.
"Swap logos" did, but vote.debian.org does not give information about the
vote, though the resolution was approved (maybe without a vote).

(Thanks to Neil McGovern for pointing this out).
