So to clarify, I think a proposal can be withdrawn, but once the vote has been called it can't be withdrawn, and you're left with things like not reaching quorum of voting FD over the other options. So looking at the votes, I found: Bdale: 12345 Russ: 12534 Ian: FD, sysvinit, upstart, openrc, systemd Keith: 12435 Don: 5 (4=3=2=1) Steve: 52134 Andi: 52134 (I didn't see anybody change his vote, and didn't see Colin vote?) Anyway, I'm really only sure what Ian and Don vote. The way I see it there are 2 ways to represent your votes with only numbers. The one that devotee uses is you give the rank for each of the options in order of the options, because that way you can represent votes that you consider equal. What I think some people here use is the order of the options which gets confusing because they're also numbers. I think it would be good that you all agree on some short notation to avoid confusion, like Don's. What I think people vote in devotee's notation is: 12345 12453 53421 12435 22221 32451 32451 So even if Colin would vote you couldn't beat the default option (FD), and all the other options would be dropped. As such I think the result is no longer in doubt and FD wins. Kurt
