General Resolution: Diversity statement, first call for votes

Hi, This is the first call for votes for the General Resolution about a diversity statement.

Voting period starts 00:00:00 UTC on Sunday, May 20th, 2012
Votes must be received by 23:59:59 UTC on Saturday, June 2nd, 2012

The following ballot is for voting on a diversity statement.
This vote is being conducted as required by the Debian Constitution.
You may see the constitution at http://www.debian.org/devel/constitution.
For voting questions or problems contact secretary@debian.org.

The details of the general resolution can be found at:

http://www.debian.org/vote/2012/vote_002

Also, note that you can get a fresh ballot any time before the end of
the vote by sending a signed mail to
ballot@vote.debian.org
with the subject “diversity”.

HOW TO VOTE

First, read the full text of the platform.

To cast a vote, it is necessary to send this ballot filled out to a
dedicated e-mail address, in a signed message, as described below.
The dedicated email address this ballot should be sent to is:

diversity@vote.debian.org

The form you need to fill out is contained at the bottom of this
message, marked with two lines containing the characters
‘-=-=-=-=-=-’. Do not erase anything between those lines, and do not
change the choice names.

There are 2 choices in the form, which you may rank with numbers between
1 and 2. In the brackets next to your preferred choice, place a 1.
Place a 2 in the brackets next to your next choice. Continue until you
reach your last choice. Do not enter a number smaller than 1 or larger
than 2.

You may skip numbers, leave some choices unranked, and rank options
equally. Unranked choices are considered equally the least desired
choices, and ranked below all ranked choices.

To vote “no, no matter what”, rank “Further Discussion” as more desirable
than the unacceptable choices, or you may rank the “Further Discussion”
choice and leave choices you consider unacceptable blank. (Note: if the
“Further Discussion” choice is unranked, then it is equal to all other
unranked choices, if any — no special consideration is given to the
“Further Discussion” choice by the voting software).

Finally, mail the filled out ballot to: diversity@vote.debian.org.

Don’t worry about spacing of the columns or any quote characters (“>”) that
your reply inserts.

NOTE: The vote must be GPG signed (or PGP signed) with your key that is
in the Debian keyring. You may, if you wish, choose to send a signed,
encrypted ballot: use the vote key appended below for encryption.

The voting software (Devotee) accepts mail that either contains only an
unmangled OpenPGP message (RFC 2440 compliant), or a PGP/MIME mail
(RFC 3156 compliant). To avoid problems I suggest you use PGP/MIME.
