While we discussed the 2016/002¹ and 2016/004² GRs, about the
declassification of debian/private, we discussed the argument that any
group of people (and, certainly, any group of Debian developers) could
set up a private communication channel.

  ² https://www.debian.org/vote/2016/vote_004

We do, yes, maintain some private communication while working
officially as the Technical Committee - and it's a known fact. We try
to maintain as little as possible contact with maintainers that are
part of a dispute... But sometimes, it's the only way to move

We have to acknowledge not all DDs have the same personal
skills. Disputes are draining for everybody, but some people might
find it even harder. Engaging directly with a person with whom you
already have a story of tension is something mnay people will do their
best to avoid.

So, yes, sometimes we will use private communications, and try to
serve as a channel between the parts through which the essence of the
communication, without the thorns and the pain, can better flow.

Of course, there is a committment that we will share the fact this
communication took place, and we will communicate the contents to the
community at large.
