        While this is a legitimate question, but how likely is it that
 people can "miss" the vote? debian-devel-announce is the one list
 people are supposed to be subscribed to, and for a period of 9 weeks
 there are (almost) weekly announcements about the forthcoming vote
 (nominations get 4 mails, platforms get at least one, debates a few,
 and then there are 4 ballot mails).

        There is a three week period where ballots can be cast.

        Err, how about right here?

        Now, one might be away from the net for prolonged periods, and
 thus unable to send in a ballot, but an active developer is unlikely
 to just "miss" the vote.
