Re: DEP-16 Confidential votes

* Stéphane Glondu <glondu@debian.org> [2021-04-16 17:12]:
I would be glad to help :-)

With all that being said and having made my case, I am open for any
reasonably secure solution (including Belenios) that we can agree on,
and I will help implement it if I can.
And I am open to make changes in Belenios if needed.
I'd like to raise two questions for debate:

1. Do we want to retain the ability to vote openly?

Obviously, open votes are more transparent, which is nice and very
appropriate for many technical issues that we might vote on. On the
other hand, most votes in Debian are DPL elections anyway.

2. How much are we committed to the current process that works
exclusively via email?

Personally, I think that a structured HTML form is more accessible for
screen readers than pure text ballots, and you can still make the web
interface render nicely in a text browser such as Lynx or w3m.

On the other hand, some people might have considerably less trust in
their web browser than their email client.
