To be honest, I am not even sure a vote is needed in the first place.
In my opinion, all the previous steps are already enough :
presentation on the ML, looking for a sponsor, and discussion period.
If no one has anything bad to say during the discussion period, or if
it's only a few suggestions than the new applicant takes care of, then
who is going to vote no?
Same applies for technical decisions : if a change is proposed and a
few people find this is a good idea, and no one strongly objects, it
should be fine as well.

But well, I am getting way off-topic and I am not even a TU so I am
not concerned about this and my opinion doesn't matter. So back on
I don't know if anonymity is needed. From my point of view, the main
advantage of the new method would be to make the task easier overall
and remove noise from the ML.
Preventing non-TU from voting and allowing anonymity are just side
effects of this new method but they are not tied to it.
It's rather interesting that I don't even follow aur-dev so I wasn't
aware of that mail :
I think this justifies my original mail as an attempt of not losing a
potentially useful contribution from wizzo.
