Hi Adrian,
if there is technical committee for arbitrating technical difference,
I'd suggest a duty added to the DPL position: social mediator. Someone
would email mediation@debian.org which would be a special address
forwarded to the DPL(leader@debian.org?) that would be encrypted with a
DPL public key as to provide privacy. One party would email the problem
and the mediator would send an encrypted email to (a leader of a group or the
particular person) asking for a conference on a private irc channel with
no logging and such. Each party would represent their side and the DPL
would try to workout something. After the meeting everyone would agree
to not discuss anything in public and only redress furthur problems by
arranging another private irc session.
