The last vote showed that there is no overwhelming majority you're talking of.

Also, "active developer" demands a definition and that very definition was
clearly abused for the intention to assume the project because even active
maintainers were not included in that definition.

Neither would even a simple majority justify an assumption of the project but a
vote about and corresponding action.

Also I do not see Michael to grasp for power but others...
