[TECH] Status summary of all clusters



Attached is a summary of voting activities and candidate phases for
those clusters that still have active candidates.  It includes a list
of who voted in what cluster, how unresolved content decisions have
affected candidates in that cluster, etc.

In the next few emails, I will send out more detailed vote summaries
for various groups of clusters, which I am whimsically calling
meta-clusters.  These vote summaries will include voter comments and
any modifications I have made to the candidates.
