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

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 ;)
