fedmsg for voting?

A question has come up in #fedora-apps as to whether or not we should
publish fedmsg messages for voting.  In particular, we're looking
now at the new "nuancier" webapp[0] that will be used to vote on
supplemental wallpapers.  It is in development.  There is a demo

There is a pull request up[2] that adds fedmsg messages to nuancier.
It publishes messages when an election admin opens or closes an
election for voting, as well as when an election admin publishes or
rescinds the results of an election.  Everyone seems to think that
this is fine.

What is under question is that it publishes a message for each set of
votes cast by users[3].  It includes the number of votes cast, the fas
username of the person who did the voting, and in what election they
voted.  It does *not* include what the person voted for or against.

If we are able to add fedmsg messages to this, then we will be able to
award badges for voting on wallpapers.  That would be nice.

Whatever the decision we come to on the supplemental wallpaper voting
app, we would like to apply that same logic fedmsg messages on the
general elections voting app later down the road.
