DIS29500 ballot result in charts

Here are a few charts showing how the DIS29500 voting broke down

First of all the P (Participating) members. Here we see the largest number of disapproval votes. The P members were subjected to fairly intense lobbying and in several countires the committees felt that disapproval was the *only* means of expressing "conditional approval" if they had technical comments.DIS29500 P votes

The important ration for P members is the approve:disapprove ratio, with abstentions omitted. To meet the ballot success requirement 5 abstain or disapprove votes need to change to approve at the BRM.

Next the O (Observer) members.

And then votes from NSBs that are neither P nor O members

Which all adds up to give this overall picture for all votes cast in the DIS29500 ballot. This clearly indicates there's substantial support for OpenXML to be an ISO standard.

And finally, a chart that shows all of the approve/disapprove votes with abstentions omitted that shows the combined approve/approve with comments rating was 74%
