Read the full story (hopefully with more updates as they become available)....

ETA: According to a comment on Schneir's blog, "the issue was that a Puerto Rican delegate was allowed to vote on internal matters but not listed as a voting member, so there was one extra vote when all was tallied." OK, that might make sense, but they should really watch for that sort of thing.
