I really don't think the majority was overwhelming. These numbers are
difficult to evaluate since there are other sources than just this
mailing-list and of course any vote should be multiplied with the
amount of contributions a particular voter has made to this project.

No, I am not going to say this since I don't agree with the lines
written above and they do not express my view of the decision process.
Of course there is some sort of force. A decision is made and then,
instead of discussing it over and over again, it is forced upon the
people that didn't agree. I would prefer that everyone agreed but it
looks as if a few people are completely stuck on their choice. I'm
feeling sad about this and takes a good amount of fun out of doing
this release.
