"Tone is not a strength of Gentoo" is my own obserservation. Please be more verbose - I fail to understand the core of your question.

I have oberved this in #gentoo, in the forums and basically every thread releated to Python 3 - that topic seams to be a heat bomb. Are links to concrete threads really necessary? I'm afraid we'll be arguing about that very case and justifications for this and that sentence then. My concern are all threads together.

I have previously contacted DevRel with concerns about their inactivity even with cases happening. I have not asked for specific actions on the mailing list, though. I agree with antarus that it shouldn't be the job of just DevRel to demand friendly tone on communication mediums but the job of everyone involved.

As I understand you say that bad bug reports make it hard for you to stay friendly. Correct? Any ideas what we could do on our end to improve the situation? Best, Sebastian
