Nevertheless, I probably won't vote - I object to public ballots on
principle. That's been raised by others, so I won't repeat the
arguments, and I appear to be very much in a minority here.

Would it help if we only published who voted, and kept their votes
private? Publishing the actual votes probably doesn't make a
big difference here, relative to the broader Python/tech community.
That would probably be enough to convince me to vote, but I don't want
to hold things up either. If I'm the only one, why bother? It's not
like my vote will change the result ;-)
BTW, the years I was on the PSF Board, I always wanted everyone to
know how we voted on everything. But I was elected to that position,
so was voting as a representative of those who elected me.
But nobody has any more business knowing how I vote on a PEP than,
say, how I vote for the local mayor. That's between me and my
conscience. Your vote is between you and yours, and I want actively
_not_ to be able to see how others voted.
Although I'm all in favor of making the PEP ballots public, if
stripped of personally identifying info.
