17 DevRel is repsonsible for solving conflicts between developers.
18 Apparently I am not the only one who expects DevRel to take an active
19 role in enforcing the CoC, at least where it concerns inter-developer
20 relations. If this is not DevRel's task, then this should be made
21 explicit.

28 This is very worrying. Such things should never be a silent agreement.
29 This needs to be open and transparent. This is policy that needs to be
30 explicit.
