Documenting a buggy interface isn't fixing the problem, and the obvious
interpretation of the vote "------1-" or "G" is to rank Bruce above
everyone else. For comparison, the latest drafts of the Debian voting
A.6 Vote Counting
1. Each voter's ballot ranks the options being voted on. Not all
options need be ranked. Ranked options are considered
preferred to all unranked options. Voters may rank options
equally. Unranked options are considered to be ranked equally
with one another. Details of how ballots may be filled out
will be included in the Call For Votes.
