Verification of the GNOME Foundation Anonymous Voting Referendum Results

To run the vote counting scripts, you need to download this archive: 2004-10-verif.tar.gz.

Please note that you need make, wget, perl and python to run the verification.

We advise every member to download the verification software and to verify that his/her counted vote is indeed the vote he/she sent

Running the verification

Here are the steps to obtain the results:

$ tar zxvf 2004-10-verif.tar.gz
$ cd 2004-10-verif
$ make
