Dear all,

As promised, a CSV with the vote log was published [1]. The election 
result wiki page [2] was updated with this info. The file is not 
necessarily pretty (e.g. columns names are ridiculous long). However, I 
did not want to make any edits on the raw export from LimeSurvey. Anyone 
looking into this file should be aware of at least two things:

- "Yes" means that the member voted for the nominee. "No" means that the 
member did not select the nominee in his vote. We had no procedure to 
vote against a certain nominee. "No" it's just the way LimeSurvey is 
recording the results.

- The file includes the "not finished votes". These votes were not 
considered in the final vote cont as the members did not finish the 
voting procedure.

I was hoping to also provide some kind of visual representation of the 
vote evolution. That is the reason for the vote log publication delay. 
However, other duties prevented to do so. If someone has good skills in 
this area, please do create a chart of the CSV file and let's as know. 
Otherwise, I will do that when the time allows me (mid next week most
