So you are aiming for a trigger-happy devrel that tries its hardest to
kick off anyone it feels like, whilst relying upon the council to keep
it honest?

If it ever gets to the stage of the council overruling devrel, I'd hope
that the council would also impose sanctions against devrel to
discourage them from abusing their power again. If the council does
ever have to overrule devrel, it suggests that something is seriously
wrong with devrel's procedures...
