Debian vote about firmware and the Lenny release
14th December 2008

Today the voting period starts for this general resolution about firmware and the Lenny release.

As many have pointed about before this is very complex vote with many orthogonal issues.

The issues and some of the options:

And then we're going to decide all of that in 1 single vote. I interpret the options we have as:

Choice 1:

Choice 2:

Choice 3:

Choice 4:

Choice 5:

Choice 6:

Choice 7:

So in my opinion, options 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 all decide on 1 of the 4 questions, and only 2 of them about the same question.

I also don't see any bugs filed against the linux-2.6 package about any issues the kernel might have with firmware, so I have to wonder why we're voting about this.

My current vote is "2222221". I'm not sure it's the best options, but I currently don't see a better one.
