I'm following and the

The way I see it, we make decisions based on consensus, not numbers.
On procedural issues we define consensus to be the majority opinion,
but there's a clear reservation for cases where it's unclear whether
the measured majority is representative of the whole community.

This vote has made it quite clear that we have a much deeper
disagreement over the status of incubating releases, and that we
really should reach some consensus on that before nailing down
decisions on release distribution.
