Hello,

That's quite an interesting question.

Personally, I see nothing wrong with asking people -- whether
volunteers or employees -- as a group to vote in a secret-ballot
election. It's not as if the company can give any sanctions for not
voting the right way.

Incidentally, I'm a very happy user myself, not an official of
OpenOffice, LibreOffice, Apache or anything like that.

Cheers!
