Your patch was difficult to read. The list thinks it's binary (see
bottom). Till we figure a fix, could you append patches directly to
the message body?

Most of the test/simulation votes are here (Thomas wanted them here):
It's worked out well. G!p!sandbox is for big demonstrations and tests
(future realistic), and Sys!p!sandbox is for smaller ones (current
Most other places, you can unvote them if you want. But after I pull
this patch, (I guess you know) the only way is to shell into the
vote-server and use the 'voter' shell, or psql.

That's a little more expensive (as we discussed earlier), requiring
changes to manual and simulation scripts, and a little grepping to
ensure no code anywhere depends on the old scheme.
Also there's a related problem crying out to be fixed. When a user or
bot (or whatever) takes alias "Joe", then it translates to one of
these mailish usernames:
Test-joe-ZeleaCom | Sim-joe-ZeleaCom
Those are horrid. It doesn't matter what we subsitute for "test". So
if you go for a deep fix, then it might be good to address this, too.
Maybe something like these?
Joe-test-ZeleaCom | Joe-sim-ZeleaCom
