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  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.
 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.
