There is no ambiguity. The appeal succeeded and the consensus decision after last call was reversed. The consensus decision to send to last call was upheld.

My understanding of the PDP is that the proposal has the same status it would have if the Co-chairs had (properly) declared no-consensus at the end of last call. I believe that means it is remanded to the authors and the list for further discussion and refinement (or withdrawal).
I encourage the authors to seriously consider withdrawal. The current soft landing policy is bad enough. Further attempts to make it worse seem to be permanently mired in controversy which is unlikely to get resolved.
