        Thanks for the git repo pointer. I appreciate the opportunity to
 look at the kinds of changes you have needed, and  will see if I can
 incorporate them into the next version of devotee I am (stalled on)

        Hmm? The last vote I ran, I thought I was in sync between my git
 version and the code that ran. Perhaps there have been changes made on
 vote.d.o; I'll see if I can merge those back when I  have time to work
 on devotee.

of interest is easy.
