I might well have supported a GR (depending exactly what it said), but
I'm not on -vote or -project (yes, I probably should be), so I didn't
notice that one was proposed. (I was also very busy trying to do
actual work). I was a little surprised that all that angst failed to
generate a GR. Turn out that in fact it did.

At this point I'm inclined to agree.
I'm just pointing out that interested people, who are moderately
well-involved, really did miss that a GR was attempted.
