Thanks for the results Matt.
I belong to the 122, reason for not voting is there're too many opinions to make up my mind. Maybe I have a too busy life or it simply is because english is not my main language, whatever is true or relevant. Let's see how it goes when we vote about the current vs new licenseā€¦

That's all.
