Sorry to be formal (I'll explain why) - the usual way to tally an ASF
vote is with a [VOTE][RESULT] message, with the exact same subject
line as the vote message except the added [VOTE] marker, and the tally
should look something like:

+1 from the following PPMC members:
(list names here)

(list names here)

The vote result is ....

(same lists of +1s and -1s and results)

It's sometimes ok to omit names but including them allows people to
easily check that their votes were tallied.

Of course, if it's all +1s and no other votes the tally can be simplified.

The reasons for having vote results in plain text and the
[VOTE][RESULT] header is to make it easy to find and read the votes in
our mail archives.

Repeating the exact vote topics also helps finding things and avoids
any confusion.

Could you redo this tally in the proper way?
