[webkit-dev] adding voting to bugzilla

Filing bugs on http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ for Mozilla, Firefox and  
Bugzilla itself, I've noticed that voting doesn't get used much,  
especially considering how much traffic that site must get.  Of all  
324,478+ bugs on the site, there are only 78 bugs (in any status)  
over 100 votes, and the bug with the most votes has 779.

I've always thought that the number of people on the CC list for a  
given bug was just as
informative as--if not more so than--the number of votes on a bug.   
Unfortunately, you can't query by the CC list count currently unless  
you have direct access to the database.  I just filed this  
enhancement bug, though.  Please vote for it if you have a b.m.o  
account.  (Mmm...irony!)


Having said that, I don't think it would hurt to enable voting on  
WebKit, and perhaps the b.od.o users will respond differently.
