I've been talking with Manoj already, in private to try and avoid
flaming. I specifically asked him to delay this vote until the
numerous problems with it were fixed, and it was started anyway. I'm
*really* not happy with that, and I'm following through now.

Quite a number of people have contacted me privately, both in person
and by mail, to complain about this ballot. There have been some
delays (day job suddenly gettting *incredibly* busy :-(), but rest
assured that I am not happy with how things are going at the moment
and I'm doing something about it. I haven't yet responded to all those
people, and for that I apologise.
