The last [https://web.archive.org/web/20050420042943/http://www.debian.org/vote/2003/vote_0001 Debian Project Leader election] was a very close one. Martin Michlmayr won a [https://web.archive.org/web/20050420042943/http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Condorcet%27s_method Condorcet-tallied election] in a very close race between him, Bdale Garbee (the incumbent), and Branden Robinson. Doing analysis on these result yields some interesting observations.

I can't say I'm very close to the Debian development process. I used to use a Debian box as my primary home desktop, I wrote one of the scripts that are used to tally the elections, and Electorama is run from a Debian-based ISP. However, I can't say I'm very familiar with the individual candidates and the differences in their platforms. The conclusions I draw below are drawn from the data itself, and not from any insight (or lack thereof) in any external factors.<br />
