Who will lead the group? Also is the enforcer's powers limited purely to
spurs on IRC and mailing lists; i.e. behaviour issues and/or repetitive
patterns still go to devrel for discussion; complaints to Bugzilla, etc?

Devs (well, ops in the channel) have always had this capability; nothing
new. Also address problem of enforcer himself being an ass on IRC/MLs,
what happens then; we don't want a "that guy did it and he's reponsible
for good behaviour so I can do it too" happening...

... making sure that said person is informed of the ban, otherwise it
might be useless and have no effect.

gentoo-devrel isn't a database for etiquette violations given that it's
archived all over the place. You need a more appropriate place.

Topic such as? And if it's verbatim what's the point of the ban?
