Well, we have this condorcet voting mechanism in Debian - I see no

interested voters (yes, there is an option that you buy a gang of
people who subscribe to the list and promote your favourite name - but
I guess this will not really happen). Votting mails should be signed
by a valid key.
So in your opinion participants in the vote is readers of this and
related lists that is part of the Debian ring of trust?
Make a better suggestion if you think this is suboptimal.
Consensus and democratic voting is *different* methods to reach a
(and until you brought up the issue of voting I actually believed that
you wanted to avoid that and instead take the needed time to reach
consensus by open debate instead)
I do not see any convergence to a consensus nor do I think that this
can be approached. I'd be happy if I'm wrong. Please prove me wrong!!!
I'd be so happy if that would happen.
