<p>Well, this would be perfect for Xaraya and DDF operations. The irc voting we sometimes do with the notorious +1 and -1 lines works only so far. If someone doesn’t sum up the votes and puts it on a mailinglist, it’s quickly forgotten what the vote was about and the decision gets lost in the day-to-day work.
With eVote connecting to mailman, which we use in the Xaraya group, this would theoretically mean, as we have connected all mailing lists to NNTP that we can have votes and petitions on all mailing lists and newsgroups.
Especially for the DDF, which can possibly hold a greater number of projects this can highly simplify the decision making process. Definitely worth looking into.
