As I wrote earlier, I think that Eric thought that result from humming
reflected a lack of consensus previous seen on the mailing list, as
previously summarized by him here:

Had there been consensus on the mailing list already, that couldn't have
been silently overruled at the meeting.  Specifically, RFC 2418 requires
that "Decisions reached during a face-to-face meeting about topics or
issues which have not been discussed on the mailing list, or are
significantly different from previously arrived mailing list consensus MUST
be reviewed on the mailing list."  In-person meetings exist to facilitate
discussion, but they're not where decisions are finalized.
