I think that would be harmless in this case, but I believe that it would
set a bad precedent.  We do not use a secret voting system among the
committers but we have never (as far as I know) released the details of
a vote result to a wider community.  So I'd prefer, slightly, to do the
vote on the committers list in the usual way.
