This is why the vote needs to be on the list. All of us can see who cast each vote. A lot
of work for the person tallying the results, but it is completely transparent. This is particularly
important for PPMC votes which are the ones that are "binding."

The PPMC ought to consider what the larger community thinks. Remember one of the goals for
graduation from the incubator is proving the capability of growing and adding new committers
to the project based on the merits of their contributions to the community. The community
includes more than coding.
