Apparantly everyone bothers most about if they can actually win the  
But I still need a solid decision process. It is pretty hard to make an  
award based at "best Blender feature"... since sometimes more people  
worked on it, and the list of features easily grows huge, making it  
hard to find the good nominees.

What about this approach:

- The award will be named "Best coding contribution '02/'03".
- only contributions for open source blender until (including) 2.28a
   (What people work on now can be included in awards for next year)

The first voting procedure:

- We'll use the 'peer rating' ranking at projects.blender.org
- Each developer can set individually if they want to join this rating.  
If you don't join, you cannot vote either. I've excluded myself already  
from ratings.
- The ranking result won't be visible for the duration of the voting.
- I will indicate at the projects site that rating is used now for the  
- voting stops oct 15.

The top five rated will become official nominees. During the conference  
the participants will get a voting ballot with the names of nominees on  
it. At the site the nominees get a small text about what they've  

Is this acceptable?
