Everyone who has voted for bugs in the past: Don't forget to check  
the bugs you voted on. Declaring a bug fixed does not automatically  
return your votes to your unused pool. You have to remove them  
manually. With the release of 2.6.1 and its myriad bug fixes you may  
now have votes you can shift elsewhere.
