From my notes...
On Tuesday, we took a straw poll.
0 opposed both proposals.
15 liked NEW-MACRO.
7 liked SELECT-ONLY.
``Keeping IN-PACKAGE makes no difference to compatibility.'' --Moon
Pitman moved to amend this to say "deprecate" instead of remove.
The motion to amend failed 3-N.
The NEW-MACRO proposal passed unamended 12-4.
On Thursday, Aaron Larson and JonL asked that the issue be reconsidered.
The motion to reconsider passed N-1.
There was a motion to rename the SELECT-PACKAGE which we'd voted in to
IN-PACKAGE -- so that the compatible syntax (IN-PACKAGE "FOO") would work
in CLtL and ANSI CL.
Steele requested verbal clarification that we were not trying to solve
the ``dusty file'' problem but rather to make it possible to write new code
that worked in old and new situations -- it was agreed that this was a
correct characterization of the proposal.
JonL's amendment passed 13-1.
Then the amended proposal was voted in 14-0.
The net effect is that NEW-MACRO passed with the name of SELECT-PACKAGE
changed to IN-PACKAGE.
