first news on the vote

So far, the only news I've seen on the outcome of today's ROCOR vote on reconciliation with Moscow:
Delegates from the exiled Russian Orthodox Church Outside Russia decided Thursday to embrace the Moscow-based church it broke away from after the Bolshevik revolution.
It still remains for the bishops to make their final decision, but from what I can tell, they've been leading in this direction anyway.

Update: The official declaration has been posted.

Update: More coverage available this morning. AP has an updated article with some detail on the proceedings. See also the article from Interfax.
