It would take a little work. But it's work that needs to be done
anyway. Presently, the voting application only shows one issue. To be
more generally useful (for surveys, referendum, etc) it needs to be
enhanced to show more than one issue, either sequentially or organized
with titles on one page. This is pretty necessary for surveys and
somewhat useful for elections (as sooner or later we're going to want to
run elections for two organizations at the same time.)
Another note: The Fedora Ambassadors had a meeting and I read in their
minutes that they had a need to enhance the Voting App for things they
want to do but they never contacted me. I was planning to contact them
before enhancing the voting application. If someone else is planning to
make voting do surveys, it would probably be a good time to talk to the
Ambassadors about what their requirements are as well.
P.S. Voting is a pretty simple python cgi script at the moment. If
someone wants to get their feet wet, it would be a fun little project to
start working with. You could enhance the cgi or rewrite it with
TurboGears depending on how much work you wanted to do with it.
