### A few UI updates to Memopol...

Last week was a busy one for the dev team.  A handful of UI changes were made
to make Memopol more useful !

The dossiers page was enhanced (and renamed to 'Dossiers', instead of 'Votes'
previously) by adding the number of recommendations ; dossiers are now sorted
by number of recommendations and by date, too.

Clicking on a dossier reveals the list of recommendations made on that dossier,
along with vote results when they're available.  In the future, this page may
host a more user-friendly UI for recommendation management.

Political group pictures were lost in the transition to Memopol 3.14, they're
now back <3

And finally, the representative page was updated to show more information, such
as contact information and links to social networks.  The votes list now show
the date they were cast, and the most recent ones are displayed first.

Under the hood, the score mechanism was rewritten ; scores are still the same as
before, but this paves the way to easier customization of how scores are

Work on importing data from the old memopol instance has also made good progress
and it should be available in the next few days.

As said before, don't hesitate to contribute or suggest ideas for the project:
