Hi,

This is the first call for votes for the GR about declassifying
debian-private.

Voting period starts 2016-10-09 00:00:00 UTC
Votes must be received by 2016-10-22 23:59:59 UTC

The following ballot is for voting on declassifying debian-private.

This vote is being conducted as required by the Debian Constitution.
You may see the constitution at https://www.debian.org/devel/constitution.
For voting questions or problems contact ***@debian.org.

The details of the general resolution can be found at:
https://www.debian.org/vote/2016/vote_004

Also, note that you can get a fresh ballot any time before the end of
the vote by sending a signed mail to
***@vote.debian.org
with the subject "gr_private2".

To vote you need to be a Debian Developer.


BALLOT OPTIONS

Choice 1: Repeal previous GR
============================

Title: Acknowledge that the debian-private list will remain private.

1. The 2005 General Resolution titled "Declassification of debian-private
list archives" is repealed.
2. In keeping with paragraph 3 of the Debian Social Contract, Debian
Developers are strongly encouraged to use the debian-private mailing
list only for discussions that should not be disclosed.

Choice 2: Acknowledge difficulty
================================

Title: Acknowledge difficulty of declassifying debian-private

1. The Debian Project regrets the non-implementation of the 2005
General Resolution titled "Declassification of debian-private list
archives". That General Resolution is hereby repealed.

2. In case volunteers should come forward: Permission remains for the
list archives (of any messages, whether posted before or after
this resolution) to be declassified, provided that the
declassification process is at least as respecting of the privacy
of posters to debian-private as the process set out in the 2005
General Resolution.

3. Furthermore, the Debian listmasters remain empowered (subject to
the usual consultation processes within the Debian project) to
revise the rules governing the privacy and declassification of
messages to -private. This includes making measures to make
declassification more widely applicable, or easier to automate.

4. But, any weakening of the privacy expectations must not be
retrospective: changes should apply only to messages posted after
the rule change has come into force.

5. In particular, we reaffirm this rule: no part of a posting made to
-private, which explicitly states that it should not be
declassified, may be published (without its author's explicit
consent). This rule may be changed by the listmasters (para.3,
above), but only for future messages (para.4, above), and only
following consultation, and only with ample notice.

6. Participants are reminded to use -private only when necessary.

Choice 3: Remain private
========================

Title: debian-private shall remain private

The text of the GR is replaced with the following.

1. The 2005 General Resolution titled "Declassification of
debian-private list archives" is repealed.
2. There shall be no declassification of any portion of the
debian-private archives, except in the following circumstances.
2a. Participants may declassify their own material.
2b. Participants may declassify the material of others where
consent has explicitly been given by the authors of all of the
material being declassified.
3. Participants are reminded to use -private only when necessary.

Choice 4: Further Discussion
============================

This is the default option. Rank this option higher than the unacceptable
choices.


HOW TO VOTE

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:

***@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 4 choices in the form, which you may rank with numbers between
1 and 4. 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 4.

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: ***@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.


VOTING SECRECY

This is a non-secret vote. After the voting period is over the details on
who voted what will be published. During the vote itself the only
information that will be published is who voted.

You can encrypt your message to the voting system to keep your vote secret
until the end of the voting period. The software will also try to keep
your vote secret and will encrypt the reply it sends to you.
