Just to point out a flaw here. Users of these packages are not
ArchLinux users. They are shackstick users. So votes don't make sense
for ArchLinux. These packages would not make sense in an ArchLinux
repo, on an ArchLinux server, for use by 1 or 2 ArchLinux users, and a
few hundred users of another distribution. So, in the case you have
outlined, the voting is working perfectly as intended.
