As Tom pointed out, you get a fixed number of votes to allocate at any one
time (they don't accumulate). How many you can place on each bug depends
on the maximum that has been set for the Product the bug belongs to. You
can, also, by this same way prevent people on voting for bugs in a
particular Product (by setting maximum votes for that product to 0.)
So let's throw out an example scenario. I don't necessarily like how KDE
does it, since one person can add more weight by slapping 20 votes on. I
personally prefer a 1 vote per person model, but it could be done either
way with success. This is probably how I would set it up:
Users are given 20 votes.
We let them allocate one vote per bug, for the things that are worthwhile
to vote on.
We set up the per-product voting settings like this:
Admin: 0 (voting not desireable here)
Developer Relations: 0
Docs-developer: 1 (one vote per bug)
Gentoo GLSA: 1
Gentoo Hosted Projects: 1
Gentoo Linux: 1
Gentoo Linux Bugzilla: 0
Gentoo LiveCD: 1
Portage Development: 1
