I think Debian use Condorcet. Look it up on Wikipedia.

But while, like all systems it can be gamed, it works quite well. In particular, it's very good at NOT eliminating a popular SECOND choice. So if everybody argues about their favourite option but everybody has the same second choice then under condorcet that second choice will probably eventually win. Under most other PR systems, it will be the first option to be eliminated.

Cheers,
Wol
