This sounds like a good system to me.

I wish they would package the software tabulation software (probably
some Perl scripts) they use. If I understand the procedure correctly:

Every Debian developer has:
1) an @debian.org address
2) an OpenPGP key

For the voting process:
1) The Project Secretary emails out a ballot

2) Each developer PGP signs the mail and sends it to the proper address
3) Software tabulates the votes according to the Constitution
4) Project Secretary certifies the results
