My notes say...
A motion to reconsider this issue was made.
The motion to reconsider passed 5-4.
A motion was made to deprecate rather than to remove.
Pitman proposed an amendment to make these macros instead of functions,
thinking that REQUIRE and PROVIDE were part of the magic functions we
were trying to eliminate. He tried to withdraw the motion to amend
when someone observed that they are not supposed to be specially treated
but others still wanted them to be macros for some reason. Anyway, the
amendment failed on a vote of 4-11.
The original motion to deprecate instead of remove was voted on.
The first count was 7-7, but someone asked for a recount.
The next count was 7-8, but someone was late raising his hand and didn't
think his vote had counted right.
The next vote was 8-7. At this point, Pitman requested a roll call vote
so there would be no dispute later.
The results were:
Univ of Utah No
Johnson Controls No
The motion failed 8-8, so the result voted on at the previous meeting stands.
