So to clarify, I think a proposal can be withdrawn, but once the
vote has been called it can't be withdrawn, and you're left with
things like not reaching quorum of voting FD over the other

So looking at the votes, I found:
Bdale: 12345
Russ: 12534
Ian: FD, sysvinit, upstart, openrc, systemd
Keith: 12435
Don: 5 (4=3=2=1)
Steve: 52134
Andi: 52134

(I didn't see anybody change his vote, and didn't see Colin vote?)

Anyway, I'm really only sure what Ian and Don vote.  The way I
see it there are 2 ways to represent your votes with only numbers.
The one that devotee uses is you give the rank for each of the
options in order of the options, because that way you can
represent votes that you consider equal.  What I think some people
here use is the order of the options which gets confusing because
they're also numbers.  I think it would be good that you all agree
on some short notation to avoid confusion, like Don's.

What I think people vote in devotee's notation is:

So even if Colin would vote you couldn't beat the default option
(FD), and all the other options would be dropped.  As such I think
the result is no longer in doubt and FD wins.
