Of course it did.  The success of the petition means one thing - that
the AC made a bad decision.

Nothing wrong with that we aren't all infallible, and that is why

more specific (and long) on the explanation of why it was dropped
that people might not have supported the petition.

They are not writing a UNIX man page, after all.
