VOTE SUMMARY: all active clusters




All:

Since I added the VOTE: line, people have been responding directly to
me in emails, instead of to the list.  (Any opinions out there on
which is preferable?)  The vote summary below makes those responses
"public."  This new VOTE: format allows me to more easily capture
people's comments, which are also listed with each candidate.

The clusters are ordered according to the scheduled Final Decision
date.

I will make Andre's extremeley minor (but quite reasonable)
description changes in MODIFY-01 when I move those candidates to the
Interim Decision phase.

Note that the MODIFY-01 and VEN clusters - or at least portions of
them - are scheduled for Interim Decision on June 28th.
