Ive been told on IRC:
<BBB> michaelni: I really don’t think it helps the vote to open discussions on unrelated topics in that very thread
<BBB> michaelni: I’d recommend to open a discussion into these questions in a new email thread

I agree that would make sense, i think someone else should
start this discussion though.

<BBB> michaelni: and then clearly specify your vote in your email, right now you’re saying something about treating applications equally, I think I know what you mean but in a legal sense, your vote would be declared invalid if this was a regular parliamentary election
<BBB> just say “I’d like to keep ffserver” (which is what I think you mean, but it’s very unclear), or “I’d prefer to get rid of ffserver”

I honestly dont think my vote was unclear, and there also is no
"I’d like to keep ffserver" option but let me also in addition vote
for "I’d like to keep ffserver" if that helps anyone count my vote
