You want to remove Votes? I've been asking SourceForge to add it for
years. It's a very useful way to prioritize your work.

Interesting idea. However, at least for the MH-E project, I like
having the distinction of Bugs, Feature Requests, and Patches. That
lets me prioritize the items. I tend to attack the Patches first
because it's less work for me, and I like to give the submitters
gratitude as soon as I can. Then the (bad) bugs next. And then the
cool feature requests.

Snooze, I lose :-).
