That's my feelings exactly. I never felt that information was provided,
so I voted for further discussion.

On a related note, I'm a little bothered about the result. Obviously
144:16 was a win. But only 160 people voted, at most 20% of developers and
probably more like 15%. And voted to change the constitution at that.
And according to the secretary's announcement, only 42.53 votes were
required, or 5%! Still, that's what the constitution says.
