[Haskell-cafe] Haskell Logo Voting will start soon!

Hi there!

It's been quiet for a while around the 'new logo' competition, but  
here is how it is going to work:

The list with options can be found here (for now): http://community.haskell.org/~eelco/poll.html 
   Notice that some (very) similar logos are grouped as one option  
(thanks to Ian Lynagh) All submissions compete, so that still makes  
more than a 100 options!

The voting system we'll use is the Condorcet Internet Voting System (http://www.cs.cornell.edu/andru/civs.html 
).  The poll won't be public, but every subscriber to Haskell-Cafe  
will get a (private) voting ballot by email.  The poll will (probably)  
start March 16 and run for about a week (don't worry, there will be a  
strict deadline communicated).  When the poll is over, the results  
will be viewable by everybody.

The CIVS allows easy grouping and ordering, so the task of ordering  
100 options should be doable within 5-10 minutes.  If you're in a  
hurry you can do it a lot faster, just pick your favorite and put it  
first.  If you want to learn more about condorcet voting, the CIVS  
site and Wikipedia are your friends.

I'll supervise the poll and make sure it's started, stopped and all  
Haskell-Cafe subscribers get a ballot (Simon Marlow provided the email  
addresses).  Since I'm going on a (probably internet deprived) holiday  
for a week _and_ to make sure I haven't overlooked anything, I'm  
announcing it now but won't start the poll till March 16.  Of course,  
I'd love to hear about anything that I missed and/or that might  
influence the voting process in a significant way.  (There are  
probably some people subscribed with multiple addresses, but I'll be  
using the subscriber list from yesterday, so signing up now with lots  
of addresses won't get you more ballots ;)
