This is by design, once a PR has been made “public” by an initial RFR mail, it will continue to be bridged. We could change that, but it may be a bit strange for those who participate through the mailing list if the discussion continues “invisibly” on GitHub.. If you really want to withdraw an RFR you can also just close the PR and open a new one when/if it becomes ready for another round..
