In which case, there should be a procedure for abstaining? Personally,
I've yet to notice any of the DPLs whilst I've been in the project
achieving very much, and was not sufficiently convinced by any of the
manifestos to actually want to vote for any of the candidates;
equally, I expect any of them would do a passable job, so I don't want
to vote RON either.
