Scheduled for March 7th, 22:00:00 UTC, 2003, on the IRC server irc.freenode.net. There are to be two relevant channels, namely, #debian-dpl-debate, and #debian-dpl-discuss. The #debian-dpl-debate channel will be moderated. Anybody may view the proceedings, but only the candidates, the moderators, and those participating in the immediate discussion will be able to post messages. The #debian-dpl-discuss channel will be unmoderated, and anybody may post messages to it - the intention is for real-time, unmoderated discussion of the candidates' responses to the debate questions.

Some statistics are being gathered about ballots and acknowledgements periodically during the voting period. Additionally, the list of people for the election is available, complete with tokens so that the voters may check their votes were tallied. The tally sheet is also present. In the following table, tally[row x][col y] represents the votes that candidate x received over candidate y. A more detailed explanation of the beat matrix may help in understanding the table.

I would like to thank Moshe Zadka, Branden Robinson and Bdale Garbee for their service to the project, for standing for the post of project leader, and for offering the developers a strong and viable group of candidates.
For understanding the Condorcet method, the Wikipedia entry is fairly informative.
