I was and am very grateful for Martin stepping in to engange in those
discussions, even if he is not that active anymore in Debian/systemd
since he moved to RedHat.
When the initial options for the ballot were proposed, I contacted
Martin privately, that I was not happy with the existing options (I
think that was roughly two weeks ago).
I did not follow debian-vote, because I find those Debian politics very
emotionally draining. I was hoping given my feedback, that Martin would
engage in further discussions to refine the proposals.
This apparently did not happen and was probably too naive from me.
During this week I was contacted via IRC by people who were concerned
about the state of the existing options, as they didn't feel represented
While I was trying to get a text together during the week, I failed to
do so, for which I apologize. So I asked Ansgar, if we could ask you,
Sam, for one week delay.
The reason being, that I did *not* want to propose an option the last
minute. I completely agree with Simon here, this didn't feel right.


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
