Hmmm... Your idea sounds quite nice - I would not see it that much
relevant for the DPL election, as it is a highly internal topic, but
yes, I'd love to see the active/involved user and non-official
developer stand on our other votes. Maybe we could even make a series
of concentric rings representing the different "tiers" of involvement?
:) Of course, we would still require the votes to be gpg-signed, and
the signers to be part of the web of trust... But non-DDs would be
able to speak. Not vote, but see their opinion reflected.
