Stuart touched on this a month ago (see: Tools to help QA, 6/25/04) and I
didn't see any arguments for, or against it.
My thoughts (I'm in favor of bug voting):
1. Without bug voting, there's no way to determine what bugs are most
important to the public (or at least to the people using Bugzilla, which
is really *our* public, in a working sense).
2. Turning on voting is a trivial change to our system to give people a
way to promote bugs, and that in turn (ideally) shapes our priorities on
which ones get addressed first.
I'm assuming there was some reason voting was turned off (since IIRC it's
on by default). If so I'm just curious what that reason is.
