+# lots of votes!
+
+In principle, I just meant to blog saying that I've really enjoyed
+[campaigning this year](http://lists.debian.org/debian-vote/2010/03/threads.html):
+**thanks** to the other candidates and to all the people who asked questions.
+<small>(... and kudos to a couple of who-know-who-you-are-persons which have
+managed to ask very inflammable questions with a lot of tact)</small> But given
+that a blog post that way would have been too empty for my standards, here are
+a couple of extra random remarks:
+
+1. I believe that the **campaigning summary** on my
+  [[DPL 2010 page|hacking/debian/dpl-2010]] is now complete
+
+2. One week into the voting period, we seem to have quite more votes than last
+  year: we've just
+  [passed the 200 ballot thresholds](http://master.debian.org/~secretary/leader2010/),
+  whereas [last year](http://master.debian.org/~secretary/leader2009/) the very
+  same threshold got passed only after the second call for votes (which
+  corresponds to steep increases in most Debian votes). Considering that the
+  number of potential voters is lower this year (i.e. a bit more than 1'000 vs
+  a bit less than 900), this might well be the first year after a while, in
+  which the **percentage of voters increases** (which I consider to be a good
+  indicator of interest, no matter what).
