And this is not possible if all the big parties share the same position and
the small ones either get eliminated by cutoff rules or end up overvoted
all the time.

The issue in our case is that I was the only one running on a "KDE as a
first-class citizen" platform, so there was mathematically no way for
voters to give a majority to people defending this position. I'll see if I
can get more KDE SIG people to run for the next election(s) so voters
actually have a chance of getting their opinion represented by a majority.

Don't worry, there's no way I'd start defending GNOME just to get
elected. ;-)

I do think we need to listen to the consensus of the developers on the
mailing list to some extent (more than has happened in the past), but I'm
not going to vote against my electoral promises nor against KDE SIG's
interests.
