There were exactly 909 developers including active, MIA and inactive ones at
the time of the 2004-04 GR, as stated in the vote page.  However only 396
developers voted.

People who don't vote in Debian, by definition, don't care (if they wanted
to protest, they would vote against all options).

Option D (rescind the 2004-03 GR) didn't even reach the 3:1 quorum.
