That makes sense. What course of action do you suggest for this
proposal then? I tried to continue the discussion with those who were
against it in order to reach a consensus but I haven't gotten any
replies. We could of course just drop the proposal but that seems a
little unsatisfactory given the clear majority in favor.

So, any suggestions for how to proceed?
