Dear all,

The proposal to replace shop=jewelry by shop=jewellery has been rejected.

The proposal received 40 votes for, 18 votes against, and 4
abstentions. The approval rate was 68.97%, which is less than the
required 74%.

It is clear that this is a contentious issue within the community.
People on both sides of the debate seem to have strong opinions. The
vote shows that a majority of voters supports changing the tag, but
also that there exists a strong minority that is against the change.
Most people voting against the proposal do so for fundamental reasons,
so I don't think a modified version of the proposal might change the
balance (under current voting rules).

Thanks everybody for the large turnout.
