I can certainly understand that it is very uncomfortable if some
organisation one is associated with adopts a stance you are unable to
support for whatever reason, in a way that implies that you do support it.

That being the case, would it suffice (in the case where the GR gets
approved) for it to be announced with something like:

  Having passed a General Resolution by majority vote[1],
  the Debian project ...

so that it is very clear that there is room for dissenting opinion, and
with a link to the vote page so that anyone that is interested can
easily discover how individuals voted on the issue?

Cheers, Phil.
