I don't follow. I thought disputes were handled this way 1) Contact the guy and resolve the issue with him without bothering the rest of team members 2) Ask team lead 3) Ask devrel 4) Ask Council There is no way to go from 2->4 without devrel's involvement. - -- Regards, Markos Chandras / Gentoo Linux Developer / Key ID: B4AFF2C2 -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.18 (GNU/Linux) iQIcBAEBCgAGBQJOR78LAAoJEPqDWhW0r/LCqNcP/1vguJ7nAdaNOsAWMNpcck1Q ipNzY2/fQBckIa1D1mHHfjNs+f2nReVtf4Q1xh43KuSAjVkj+0ZxHTCBJi4Ps1Yg rZ6Lgr4ln2Fqacd2ymdGFzs1kSx8ACcWC2kYyNrrV/ThQ7gIaFQ304qOCyuKuhmM p/y+4MBgVYYBo7b68IFZkSL42+RSynDluT4Rl1odefaR6lkKy8fenK719WcEMIFN lk5818zvsJ5GEGO7yrNRe+h1HdlD6QJ/LSHZ9wHabxGct97YDoZ3I8+LMUbWtx4j WcQ86wbT7GZURUYaiL/clJNqxYUrj5sp+c3HeS+qvm2HPA7FsUWd74bLZi0NK+i/ R4u/wmzWOmSO8qfCW0plwDVtU1OQXaYYRp4x8JP27kHlCBIEycxd2qvId32lgrvW kXwfX6DBL215XZ5ScyxpSsbh7ct8GCM1iO3JQ35sGnTqVoEb0kylDSlQek5ay/1i gIA3bUS/3Zpf+gvd+ygpgNrNG9zSAzVVvUlOLBdklkzCqG2WzSR6prTztihltdx/ 0ducb01K4JLtsnX6E5LGF6Dla3NUxewurJ71mh7BxejiWZAkeAZJaTUwngyNLfLD JNF5/xYXyBvCOY/2GafQzvtu7nRfMdNe3nHsJjKQ7jDYe/ksjbxV+zvQuNvTBjoQ DeiZqdUBq7yuhoSDDEtV =AHjo -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
