PEP 8001: Public or Private Ballots?

I agree. How about starting a poll on the governance PEPs? Perhaps in @vstinner’s new

There’s no reason “the vote” needs to be the only summary of opinions.

Note: I made the poll here public deliberately, to counter my own obvious bias in favor of not making the CIVS ballots identifiable. If, e.g., someone was just knee-jerk opposed to ever attaching their name to anything, I expected they’d leave a public poll untouched. So making this poll public was “a ploy” to ensure that only people who thought there was something special about the governance vote that merited privacy would say so in public.

I wouldn’t object to a public poll on the PEPs either, although I can’t say whether that’s true of all the others who favored anonymous ballots.
