exactly! My choice does not fit on the form ;)

IMV, the community has decided, and making a different
decision now would be overruling that decision by the pmc.
Which is valid, of course, but I don't have to like it :D

I was under the impression (though I can't figure out why
from the archives) that the decision reached by the members
was something like "we don't agree, so we don't act".

Okay, thanks for providing some extra context. big +1 to closure :D

never my intention 8-)

rephrase: with my PMC hat on, I don't think the PMC
needs to make the members aware of anything or ask
them to act, simply because they are already aware, and
are furthermore perfectly capable of making any/all
neccessary decisions themselves (at least I'd hope so :D),
