Which isn't necessarily the same as one vote per person. I think the chance
of significant ballot stuffing going on to influence who gets to do a lot
of work for free are low. But someone might try something as a prank.
It's been a few months since I did the CLA, and my memory is that the
process is automatic up until the point where I need to get into a group
that can do something.

I think the requirement should be membership in some (any) other group than
cla_done. This shows a bit more interest. It also requires manual approval
so that some prankster can't hose an election by creating a lot of dummy
accounts. (This would most likely be detected, but would still be a
significant annoyance to have to clean up after.) I think this category
would include all of the people that people have been concerned about in
this discussion.
