  We know that 80% of the developers didn't care enough to vote.  The
only reasonable conclusion I can draw from that is that most [0] of them
considered both options equally acceptable (or unacceptable).

  If there really is a silent 80% majority opposed to the recent GR,
hopefully they'll bother to vote next time.  We have a great voting
system, but it only works if people take a few minutes to read the
ballot, evaluate it, and send in a vote.


  [0] I don't believe that 80% of the developers are too busy to cast a
  vote in an electronic election spanning three weeks.  25%, maybe.
