[Scheme-reports] voting has ended

The vote is now complete.  The unofficial tally (according to my count
of names listed at http://trac.sacrideo.us/wg/wiki/PlebisciteIndex )
is 56 for and 7 against, but 2 of the yes votes were conditional.

About 85.7% of the votes cast were unconditionally yes.  If the two
conditional yes votes were counted as yes, the percentage would rise
to about 88.9%.  Both of those percentages exceed the 85% threshold
mentioned in the WG1 charter.

The Scheme Language Steering Committee does not yet have any official
announcements to make, but I'd suggest WG1 proceed by assuming the
SLSC will ask WG1 to consider all specific issues raised during the
voting period ( http://trac.sacrideo.us/wg/wiki/PlebisciteObjections )
and to prepare one more draft R7RS that incorporates WG1's best effort
to resolve those specific issues.

I thank everyone who voted.  I congratulate editors Alex Shinn, John
Cowan, Arthur Gleckler, the members of working group 1, and all others
who contributed to the success of this effort.

Will Clinger
