Oliver, do you recall "total votes"
from last year's poll? Partly just curious,
and partly wanted a sanity check that
this Eclipse polling was working
similar to the doodle poll.
I think this is a clear case of "no
clear winner" so we should have a run off vote,
And that'd be (at least) between the
top two contenders ... Indigo and Isaac.
So, can we "live with" either
of these choices? See bug 306864 for
community thoughts on some reasons to
exclude one or both.
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=306864 From my read, there is no clear reason
in the (negative) comments there
to exclude either ... but, I'm not a
great judge of "marketing issues" so feel free
to state your views.
Second question. In theory, we could
include, say 5 choices in run off vote, adding Ion, Iris, and Isis
The logic being is that the preference
of the group might still be for one of those, if all those
in the minority choices all happened
to favor the same one of those. The only
problem in doing that, is we might still
not end up with a strict majority, and might have to have another
run off if there was a close vote. In
So, let me know if you have a view on
completing this. If I hear nothing from you today, then tomorrow I'll start
a run-off vote
with the top two, Indigo and Isaac,
just to state the default action if none of you have a preference on
how to vote, or any to exclude.
