Description:
for all feature requests in bugs.mysql.com it would be nice to have a "vote for this" button that a logged in user can use to indicate they would love this feature to be implemented.

each user should only get a single vote.

there should be some capture to prevent automatic voting.

How to repeat:
figure out which feature requests are most needed by everyone (customers + community together).

the rational is currently we can only count associated csc issues, which is not entirely representative of the need for a feature.

right now, if you want to cast a vote, then please "subscribe" to the bug in question. we monitor the number of folks subscribed as an indicator of the level of interest ...

With "Impact on me" implemented, can this be closed now?
