OK. The important thing is that the process can continue. It might well 
be that nobody prefers to state his preferences in private (meaning: 
somewhere else than ooo-dev): as I wrote, it was not a personal concern, 
I just wondered if allowing it would increase participation in this 
nomination phase (and at the same time I encouraged those, if any, who 
preferred secret nominations/lists to speak up, and nobody did so far, 
which probably means I was simply wrong and everybody is fine with 
public nominations/lists).

I was going to answer that secret ballot is a basic principle, but 
indeed, now that I think about it, it might be that there is no such 
thing as a "secret ballot" in the Apache way, at least for normal 
operations... does not 
mention this possibility. Good to know. But we can come back to this at 
a later stage and let the current nomination phase continue.
