A remark, absolutely not related to this new TU in particular, and in
no way related to my voting period (as far as I remember, I didn't get
any "no"): I see votes against a candidate here. I perfectly
understand that someone can think a candidate is not good enough (even
if I would disagree in that particular case), that there are too many
trusted users (which would seem dumb to me), etc. Actually, any reason
at all.
But I think that a "default" behaviour, if a candidate is "globally"
OK, would be to vote "yes". That doesn't need explainations. Else, why
you think "no" is a better vote should be explained, because it might
means that you have something interesting to say!
That's not an attack over the 2 "no" voters in particular (I don't
have SQL access ;), but a general thought: if there's any reason for
you to vote "no" and if that reason wasn't exposed before, maybe you
should consider send it to the ML... Communication isn't overrated
when it's about some new hands!

Congratulations to Daenyth!
