AIUI your confusing 2 different counts:
- the count of "# valid votes made"
- the count of "# valid votes taken into account", which is only the last
  valid vote for every developer.

if there's people who changed their vote, only their last vote is counted to 
determine the outcome of the resolution, but they still made 2 votes (or 
more if they changed their minds more then once
