Okay, I've done my best to follow the format there and add a formal
issue around "Governance":
Hopefully others can expand/clean it up as necessary.
For the record, while I completely agree with Colin that we would
benefit from a more transparent (and perhaps slightly gentler)
process, I deeply appreciate Tantek's courage, humility, and
graciousness in attempting to deal with this situation. I too have
had to moderate mailing list disputes , and I know how difficult
it is to find the right balance between helping people feel "safe"
and ensuring they feel "free." We may never get it right (so I
second the call for a meta-list :-), but I feel very privileged to be
part of a community that hasn't stopped trying.
