Dear Geoff and Yana,

even though the consultation results indicate that collective membership
mark may have a slightly stronger support than abandoning all trademark
registration, the issue is clearly very divisive. Taking the way the issue
developed and its history, and past communication problems on the way, I
think that recognizing a lack of clear consensus as a good reason to keep
the status quo is sensible. I would like to thank you and commend you for
your hard work, but also for your flexibility - it must have been tough to
put in many hours and work on a solution you believe is best for the
community, and then withdraw.
