[VOTES] Vote details for recent clusters with advisories



This LEGACY-RECENT-ADVISORIES meta-cluster includes vote details for
clusters proposed after October 1999.  All of these candidates have
formal advisories associated with them.

UNIX-VEN
LINUX
CERT2
MS

Also, note that in the ALL-NEW meta-cluster containing the RECENT-XX
clusters, I inadvertently included candidates that went to final
decision.  It was bound to happen sometime.  Future meta-clusters will
not include such candidates.
