Sorry, I didn't meant to say, that it was your fault. In fact I was a
bit astonished to see that you posted the mail on -announce since this
used to be Manoj's job.

Anyways, announcing the vote roughly 12h *after* the vote has begun (or
1/14th of the voting period itself if I'm not mistaken) on the only list
every DD is obliged to read is very negligent in my opinion. I think in
the real world that would be enough reason to undo the whole vote or at
least restart it.
