I think you read the message related to a feature requested by Bill
Maltby (something like "a feedback of LFS-PRE versions, to see if the
book is ready for final release, from the user point of view". I hope I
understood Bill's ideas fully). We've decided to discuss this on lfs-dev
later, to see if there is some interest.

gpoll is too simple to fullfill Bill's suggestion. So, we'll also
discuss later some way to do this (maybe a friendly interface to
Bugzilla, like ?)

Back to the voting poll thing, you initially suggested it, remember? I'd
like to bring gpoll up, so you can see if it is what you expect.

Nice, either pollcentral and gpoll support it. As was you that brought
up this idea initially :P, you can answer this: what features would you
like to see on the voting poll?
