I thought Mozilla does it 1-per-bug, but I guess I'm mistaken. KDE works
well with 20-per-bug.
I'm cool with it either way. Any reasonable value will probably work. I
gave that example to show how I would set it up-- starting at one vote per
bug and changing it later if users request it. I prefer incremental
approaches (starting small and working up as the needs dictate).
sj7trunks is responsible for maintaining bugzilla... so I believe he'd
also be setting that value, if voting gets implemented; and I hope it
does. Voting is a low cost, low impact tweak to give the users a way to
help steer the things we're working on.
