You should have cross-posted the vote announcement on all concerned lists,  
then you'd been more votes.

Well, if you want to mimic fdo, abbrev should be loo (libreoffice.org  
instead of freedesktop.org)
loo is a good trade-off : more than 2, but less than 4; different of the  
standard lo we use to shortcut LibreOffice

BTW, I vote also for lo# if loo# has no access to the vote list ;)
