With Fedora 9 out the door we hit a very busy time for elections, the
previous system was, well lets just say, not optimal.
So I accepted the goal of creating an application by our post-release
election season that would integrate well with FAS and would allow a
different method of voting, Range Voting.
If your not familiar with Range Voting check out
the essentials however is
that you rank candidates from 0<-># of candidates, if you don't like
them, just rank them 0.
In the future, the application will not only allow the Board and
Steering Committees to hold elections, it will (hopefully) become
available to SIGs and Steering Committees for any time of poll/call to
This is where you all come in, it's impossible for a small group of
people to find every possible mistake or bug in ANY item of software,
so the more people we can get in to test it and report
bugs/issues/thoughts the better!
All I ask is 10-20 minutes of your time, whenever your free over the
couple of days to test and provide feedback.

3) Try voting etc, make sure that you *can* view the results at
