A New OpenSolaris Voting Application
By Jimgris-Oracle on Feb 22, 2010
To make formal voting on the OpenSolaris project painfully easy, Bill
has been updating the voting application
and he deployed
the new version today. Voters will no longer need SSH keys
since poll is now integrated with the auth database, and voting will be
done via a
new web front end with encryption so the command line is no longer necessary. Those were
the two main complaints previously. So, now voters can just go to poll.opensolaris.org,
a poll (if you are not logged in the system will prompt you to log in),
and then point/click on a ballot. Easy.
Poll will be available to current Core Contributors (see recent audit and database clean up mail) for testing for one week. I updated the website project's announcements and roadmap pages. Here is information on all the 15 applications that make up opensolaris.org.
