[maemo-community] Quick stats on voter lists

Hi all,

I have just generated the list of voters for the elections, and thought
that you might be interested in some stats:

Number of maemo.org accounts on 10/6/2008: 12288
Number of accounts with karma under 5: 9454
Number of accounts with karma 5 and 9: 2786
Number of accounts with karma between 10 and 24: 607
Number of accounts with karma 25 or greater: 437

Especially noteworthy for me was that a number of people (6) have
negative karma - mostly from having blog posts aggressively buried. A
couple of the people in this situation surprised me a lot! The 6
negatives are: chri_ke, karoliina, maddler, mikel, thoughtfix and zeenix.

The conclusion I draw from this is that 90% of people who create a
maemo.org account never do anything with it, and thus don't merit a vote
in a community election. But as we've already agreed on how this one
will work, I'm going to work on the assumption that those 10000 people
won't vote.
