Are we going to be configuring this on vote.debian.org? That was you can
do something like:
The ack replies would be formed in such a was as to set the from address
to be the votemaster and then bounces will be directed safely away from
the vote taking software.
I don't know if the list software needs the mail aliases for each vote
taking places so firstname.lastname@example.org might be ok. We could also put up a
web site on vote.debian.org describing what votes are currently running
and recording past vote results, etc.
