The membership committee is working on a draft for anonymous voting.
We didn't plan to use cryptography. I'm not sure if people feel it's
necessary. As our draft currently stands, it's still possible for people
to vote with a simple mail. I know, it's less secure. But people can
vote from any computer.

One problem I see in your draft is how the server identifies the voter
in the first step...

Anyway, we're planning to meet on IRC this week. Maybe you could join
the meeting? If you're interested, please tell me when you're available.
