Assuming that we use a STATUS file, then it is very easy to have a running
vote on each issue. There is no "open" or "close" announcement for an
issue to be voted on. When somebody puts it into the STATUS file, then it
is implicitly open for voting. When ample time to vote has occurred and it
is removed from STATUS, then you don't need to worry about it.
I'll note the issue tracker isn't as easy to say "open"; there is some
nebulous process that Karl defined to open an issue for voting. AFAIK,
none have been opened (since the "rules" aren't part of the issue tracker,
it is hard to know what they are all the time; with a STATUS file, the
rules can be "right there"). If an issue is *not* voted in, then what
happens? How does it get "closed"? I suspect there will some monkey games
with the milestone to suggest the various voting.
Hmm. Thinking on this more, I currently see a *bunch* of issues that have
no milestone associated with them. They're all "---" which is tough
because it can also mean that somebody hasn't dealt with it yet. The two
semantics are conflated. If there is a milestone named "open for voting",
then it would be more obvious. But then we're conflating process with
Sigh. /me waits with anticipation for the vote on IZ vs STATUS to close...
