I don't know how many people were eligible to vote in the license migration, but I believe there are currently about 150,000 active editors, if active is defined as "a registered user who has made more than five edits in the past month." Either Erik (Moeller or Zachte), or Frank, might be able to confirm that.

Do we have a rough estimate of qualifying voters who didn't vote?
17000 is pretty good, but it occurs to me I have no idea how large the
editing community really is!
