I have been putting off doing any serious thinking about this until everyone's votes are in and we have can have a global overview of what it looks like. A long succession of plain text emails is hard to parse.
Perhaps a wiki page where we can see a list of extensions that are:
* Solidly in
* Solidly out
* Under debate
Perhaps the third category has some structure e.g. some things that seem to belong together (all in or all out).
I do think we should be conservative.

| Dear Committee,
| we are getting into the third week of voting. Still missing Cale’s
| votes, but he promised to me off-band that he’ll work on it right now.
| Maybe not unsurprising, but while many of the 100-something decisions
| we have signed up to make are clear, some are not.
| I am wondering a bit if ⅔ quorum was a bad choice, and a higher quota
| would have put the critical line into a less contentious area. But
| probably _any_ quorum causes plenty of discussions around the
| extensions that are near that line.
| So how shall we continue? Simply stick to the process, have another
| week of discussions, pleas and clarifications, maybe shift this or
| that extension across the line, and then simply go with whatever we
| have end of next Monday?
| Or should we continue discussions until there is pretty much consensus
| about everything? (Probably won’t happen, though)
