2003 Debian Project Leader Election
These are the results from the 2003 Debian Project Leader election. The text below was recreated from the a 2011 archive.org snapshot of this page, back when Electowiki was running Electowidget. See http://www.debian.org/vote/2003/vote_0001 for the raw data this was derived from. The converted data can be found in an older version of this page.
The Debian Project uses the Schulze method, but Instant runoff voting results are also provided here for comparison purposes. A detailed discussion of these results is also available, written long ago before this program was released. See talk page for discussion about conversion of ranked ballots to range ballots. An approval voting tally is also provided, which assumes all candidates better than NOTA are approved, and all candidates equal to or below are not approved. The approval result is admittedly dubious, since its not obvious the voters would have actually voted that way.

Schulze Method(wvmod)[edit  edit source]
The winner is Michlmayr.
Detailed Results[edit  edit source]
The results below were calculated using the Beatpath algorithm for Schulze(wvmod). This is done first calculating the pairwise results, then creating two matrices of winning votes (with negative opponents' votes in event of a loss) and margin of victory. It then calculates two Beatpath matricies, which is a matrix of the better of a direct victory or a transitive victory. The transitive victory strength of x over z is the weakest victory of x over y and y over z. The winning votes matrix is used as a primary source, iwith the margins matrix used as a tiebreaker. The winner is the candidate for which there are no beatpath defeats.

Detailed Results[edit  edit source]
The results below were calculated using the Approval method. The winner of an Approval election is the candidate that is approved by the greatest number of voters. Since some ballot types are more expressive than necessary for approval, the results below were calculated assuming that any score strictly greater than zero constitutes "approval", and any score equal to or less than zero constitutes "disapproval".
