I think it is a great idea to keep a summary of votes on the wiki, but 
I believe that we are required (i.e., not even an option... end of 
story) to vote on the mailing list.

I think we should have person opening the vote create a summary on he 
wiki and I think we should have the person aggregating the vote log the 
final summary on the wiki.  This way we can have the formal record in 
the email and an easy to read record in the wiki.  The best of both 
worlds for only twice the work :)
