Reminder and administrivia



Hi,

        In a little over 24 hours at the time of writing, the pools
 for the Debian project leader elections for 2002 shall close. Votes
 must be received by 23:59:59 UTC on April 16th, 2002. Ballots
 received after that shall be bounced unprocessed. If you have not
 voted yet, you are running out of time.

 ========================================================================
 * the voting period is not yet over


	 At three minutes past 23:59:59 UTC on April 16th, 2002, the
 ballots sent in the last hour shall be processed, and the final set
 of acknowledgements sent off.

	At 7 minutes past the hour, the tally sheet shall be created
 at http://master.debian.org/%7Esrivasta/tally.txt 

	I am attaching two scripts to this message that shall take
 this tally sheet as input, and calculate the winner, so people can
 run  their own tallying process. 

	The first script is the algorithm we have traditionally used,
 as given in the constitution.

	The second script is the clone proof ssd method being
 recommended that we adopt. In all votes so far, both scripts return
 identical results (the interesting corner cases have not yet
 occurred).
