I dissagree complete from your idea. 
To use a sesson log of ip and cookies is easy to overcome and cheating I got over 4-6 new dip number from my isp everyday.
Cookies is automatick deleteted from my computes. For it should not be loget.  

Only Devloper must vote, other wise we will lose the controll of the project. And last I know we got 35 people with svn write access
and that is 35 people with votes.  And we devloper must make the most importen desction by votiong. other people shall/must not votiong 

Your idea is a bad idea. the devloper must have the power to controll the project not u or other that does not write code for reactos.
we devlioper talk with other on irc private or in the chanel #reactos what we think and we are using also mailing list.

  Please let me state my opinion about the voting process. I think the voting process should be open to developers and users of reactos. Although I do not develop fully on reactos, or for reactos, I am planning on developing open-sourced components for reactos that would be available through my website and possibly submitted as a package for ReactOS. I believe that developers and end users should be allowed to vote because they provide the most feedback on not only the technical but the aesthetics of ReactOS. I think putting voting in the forum and only allowing developers anonymous voting is stupid. I think logging each members votes should be logged as well as session variables and ipaddresses. This will allow the voting to stay true. Just a few thoughts...

    So far we have 2 viable options for the new voting system: 

    1. Have a new section in the forums where only the developer group has write access. 
        Conduct all votes in there using the forums built-in voting system and posting mechanism for comments 
        Vote results are stored in the database and everything is handled by the software 
        All votes are anonymous / private and each developer has only one vote. 

    2. Design our own voting system and integrate it into the website. 
        This will be controlled via the global login system and all devs will have access to initiate, vote and comment on votes.

        Vote results need to be stored in a database and everything should handled by the software 
        All votes are anonymous / private and each developer has only one vote. 

    Any comments or additions?
