I'm not asking you to get involved. You didn't like that this
escalated to this list and I'm just asking what other options there
are? Just imagine getting into a similar situation (e.g. someone is
publicly and aggressively spreading fud about you or your work w/o any
motivation whatsoever) and what you would do.

What would you do if something similar happens tomorrow again between
fedora contributor X and Y? It will evolve to another such thread that
you (and I) don't like, so coming up with a general escalation
management solution is better than to simply complain about the state
of affairs.

Furthermore there is no sentiment to cool off.
