Well, the soc-ctte will function like tech-ctte. If a developer, be they a
member of the ctte or not, screws up and posts sensitive info to soc-ctte
public list - I'm not really sure that's something that can be regulated.
Anyway, things can be discussed on debian-private and then people can decide
what to do. I could imagine a situation where the leader delegates it to the
soc-ctte to consider a particular issue behind closed doors. It wouldn't be
"normal", but this should be an exception rather than a rule.
