The chartering of the Proctors basically covers CoC enforcement on all Gentoo communication. The Forum moderators are even specifically mentioned on the Proctors wiki as a means of contacting Proctors. I believe the long-term intent was to unify these various groups to some extent, but this has not yet happened. I think this should also suggest that the appeals process should be the same as for proctors, since these other moderators are basically acting as extensions of proctors even if not formalized. So far the proctors have mainly focused on areas like the lists/bugzilla where productive Gentoo development occur which lack any other moderation. When other moderation teams are already creating a place for productive Gentoo work we haven't gotten as involved yet, such as: I'm not saying that we need some kind of mad rush to consolidate all moderation activity (otherwise I'd be proposing this). I'm just not sure I'd be in a rush to say that there isn't opportunity for improvement either (and the same is certainly true of the mailing lists, as my earlier reply to mgorny illustrates)... -- Rich
