A status update. A little over 24 hours into the election, 138
messages have been received by the vote taking system. As for the
scripts underlying the machinery, the mime handling script is done,
and tested. The gpg verification script is undergoing testing (I am
trying to set up a replay attack, and that is harder than it
looked). The ldap script, thanks to luca, is done, and tested.
I hope to get the gpg scipt finished testing tomorrow, an
people should start getting gpg nacks then (which means that gpg
nacks should be happening periodically starting friday).
The final script that is over due is the vote parsing script,
which should be finished either late tomorrow or friday by the
latest. Next week, we should have acks/nacks going out within the
hour (which is how this system was designed to work).
I am thinking of setting up a system that mails voting each
developer s random keyword unique to them, and then publishing the
encoded vote data, which should ensure openness and correctness of
tallying while preserving the privacy of individual developers.
Please yell loudly if you disagree, perhaps even with a
rationale for your disagreement.
The only problem with seeing too much is that it makes you
