Different links to voting wiki

Dear Sir or Madam,

somehow i found different content of the links of 


Please compare the links to the "Cloneproof Schwartz Sequential Dropping" of wikipedia.

The english reference link to 

The german version of that page link to

The french page link to

The spanish and all other remaining websites link to

It looks like that there was a description of the debian voting system named "Cloneproof Schwartz Sequential Dropping" first.

The debian constituion dated June 21st, 2003 at 
is talking about a schwartz set. Sorry, i am not an expert for voting procedures, but as far i understand that is something of (Cloneproof) Schwartz Sequential Dropping.

The date of the first entry on the wiki at
is 26 May 2004.

That date the entry was called

Today there is a redirect to

Mr. Markus Schulze claims that debian uses "his" voting method.

There are many questions the german article diskusion page at
relative to the publication of the "Schulze method". None of the answers can prove Schulze as the orignal inventor.

The direct use of the schulze method on the german and french debian pages may be based on the wiki entry with the redirect from Cloneproof Schwartz Sequential Dropping to the schulze method. A redirect which was done by Mr. Schulze himself.

The example of the debian vote/ page links to the Schwartz method with the link
that link is redirected to the schulz method too. At this point i see some kind of capturing of other people work.

Mr. Schulze lists companies using "his" voting method and debian can be found within that list.

I would like to ask you the following:

Do you have any piece of evidence this voting method was invented by Mr. Markus Schulze?

Did Mr. Schulze took part on the development of any debian constitution?

Did Mr. Schulze took a public improvement of a known voting system and claims it to be his own development?

Does the difference of the Cloneproof Schwartz Sequential Dropping  to the 
schulze method justifies the naming after Mr. Schulze?

Best regards

Jadima Laika
