In KDE e.V. (which is to KDE what SPI is to Debian, Jenkins and others) there is some times a need to vote. For example about accepting new members. Mostly about accepting new members. With the new vote system (ballot.kde.org), voters need to do a bit more to check their votes afterwards. basically
- Take username
- Your own secret
- The vote token
and sha256 it in the right order with the right separator chars and so on.
All sha256 sums are published together with where the vote was, so voters can verify that they are counted correctly.
After failing to construct a couple of times on the command line, I decided to write a small GUI app to help me instead.
There it is. Nice. Simple. Effective.
