That commit log says *nothing* about the change. To anyone viewing log
messages without changed path information, it's a total "huh!?" moment.

Convention, as expressed in the majority of previous commits, suggests
that ideally log messages tweaking STATUS should begin "* STATUS: ", or
if not, at least mention the word 'vote'.

If you don't want to "waste your time", you can always fall back on the
boring but at least minimally informative: "* STATUS: Vote.".
