The rug is pretty thin here :)

Last time we discussed about the potential for the project to be dead in 
march, nobody but Seven expressed the desire to continue the effort. We 
kept the project going for one more quarter, for Seven to get a chance 
to catch in, but sadly, he now have no more time...

I don't think the projects members will be surprised if we shutdown the 
project. I do agree, though, that we should have followed the procedure.

Hope it clarifies the current decision !
