I have spoken to Patrick Matthaei on irc and he has informed me that,
unfortunately, he does not want to get involved in this situation
again, because of the abuse he has received.

Now, both Philippe and Patrick have alleged abuse; unfortunately, I am
told, this was in private mainly via irc.  There apparently aren't any
appropriate logs.

I would like to emphasise that personal abuse and insults along the
lines described informally to me by Patrick are wholly unacceptable
from one participant in Debian to another.

In future, I would encourage anyone who is on the receiving end of
abusve behaviour to immediately contact, in private, someone in a
position of authority in the project; you should give a complete irc
transcript or the full text of relevant emails, etc.  If your irc
client does not have logging enabled then a screenshot is good.
(Please try to avoid publicly post your accusations of abuse, naming
the accused, if you can.)

I'm sure that members of the TC, the Project Leader, former DPLs, and
the suchlike would be happy to help anyone who is the victim of such
abuse.  Part of our responsibility is to use our positions of
influence to make sure that abuse does not continue.
