Subject RE: [DISCUSS][PMC] Proposed PMC List

Just for clarification, please.

When you say voting is secret for ASF members and Board members, that there is a way to ensure
only eligible voters cast at most one ballot, but the voters are not identified?  That is,
it is not known who voted and what their vote was?

That is generally what is meant by a secret ballot.  A private ballot is one where the participants
know what votes were cast (as in the case of a committer vote on a private list) but the individual
votes are not available generally, although the vote can be audited by authorities having
oversight (as in the committer vote case).
