The vote is always the one proposed on the thread.  It was in Yonik's original email on this

I'd hardly say the community is unhappy.  A few people have expressed unhappiness, but overall
the large majority of people that expressed interest were for it.  The primary objection seems

by a HTTP Server code, which has been rejected a number of times by all who are for it.
