The way this particular Code of Conduct Violation Complaint was handled was
entirely my fault.  Antiharassement received the complaint, and I forwarded
it on to leader@debian.org because the requested concessions were beyond the
scope of the antiharassment team to handle (we do not issue blanket
statements on behalf of debian). I did not reply to Ian to let him know that
his complaint had been received and forwarded to the appropriate people in
the timely manner that I would expect for a complaint to antiharassment, and
I accept full responsibility for that. I am very sorry.

I was mistaken in thinking that the two followup conversations I had with
Ian indicating his complaint had been received (and forwarded on to
leader@debian.org) were sufficient in keeping him informed of the situation,
even if during one of the conversations it became clear that we did not all
agree on specifics of the situation.

I will not make that mistake again.

In the future, complaints sent to antiharassment@debian.org should be
acknowledged by email as soon as possible, even if other parties are needed
for consultation in the matter.
