Voting. VoteBot was approved by the previous committee for use in the past GM's eg. m20090701.1 and the current committee saw fit not to change it. VoteBot was improved by Philipp Dunkel for this session, removing some of the difficulties seen in previous GM's. Philipp Dunkel did some enhancements to the code so private voting to votebot is possible for this meeting.
