from demanding a friendly tone on other mailing lists myself and the
private "thank you, I was afraid this was accepted around here" replies
after I prefer to keep tone discussions in the open as far as possible.
Our user base wouldn't know we care about tone if we discussed it in
private.

On the conflict resolution I would go as far as stating that DevRel
currently fails at that.  I'll start a new thread on that.

I agree that's though to do well.

Best,
