I totally agree with you.
What i disagree with, is that i didn't know that i was highly recommended to read
devel-announce, didn't even know about the list, but i guess that after the mess i
made here about that, most people will be aware now. :) ...
Anyway, could it be possible to inform this fact in some more prominent way on the
web page, or in a debian-new or someting.

No, i don't think so, once you know there is something to vote, you can search
background about the matter, and with the webs help, have an educated opinion in
what an hours time, perhaps a bit more.
