The reason for creating a form was to
a) Ensure formal votes are private (i.e. there is a space to raise issues that may be difficult to raise in public) b) Make sure that the vote is recorded and can be easily gone back to (something which is a little hard on a list)
c) Comply with the process
Maybe a) does not apply at all or maybe only in limited circumstances. This point may be valid when it comes for votes related to incubating/graduating or archiving sub-projects though (because it may reflect on an individuals or companies leadership of a sub-project) and it may be harder to air an issue publicly.

To be honest, the turn-out on these last two votes was really poor. We had only 4 votes (and only one from Citrix). Now this of course may be because the proposed changes were rather uncontroversial.

On the other hand, you often use the argument that "if somebody can't be bothered following up on their bugs/patches/etc. then bugs/patches/etc. are obviously not important enough". I am inclined to use that same argument for voring on process and policy changes.

I've voted using this now but in the future perhaps we could continue to
vote using the old "+1" in an email mechanism?

There aren't so many maintainers and committers that this would be
unwieldy IMHO.
