Dean Baker had a somewhat different take on convention.  In his blog, he said:

I just arrived home.  General Convention was absolutely exhausting, and exhilarating.   If you haven’t heard, this morning we passed the resolution that will open the door for same-sex blessings/marriages.  A few days ago we passed the resolution that will allow us to ordain gay or lesbian bishops.  Both of these resolutions passed by huge majorities.

Bishop Dan wrote the following to his flock in his blog (about what was done at General Convention with regard to inclusion of the GLTBI community):

Some people want to interpret the resolutions one way; some, another. There is some ambiguity that is open to interpretation. We are after all Anglicans and that’s how Anglicans talk. But there are reasonable limits on fair interpretation. I want to tell you how I see these resolutions. You may want them to be a great step forward. I do not want you to be disappointed if they do not live up to raised expectations. You may think they are the worst thing we’ve done ever. I do not want you to be more distressed than necessary. These are definitely resolutions intended to affirm and include gay and lesbian persons, but I do not believe they are as great a change as they appear in the newspapers, let alone the blogs. So let me tell you about these two resolutions.

He had much more to say about the nuances of what was done and the breadth of what was done at convention.  You can see the whole thing here.
