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

This is very worrying. Such things should never be a silent agreement. This needs to be open and transparent. This is policy that needs to be explicit. Cheers, Ben
