Note that it can also have very negative effects if someone jumps in and
starts mediating when none of the parties involved have actually asked
for mediation. So, in general, if you think mediation from someone would
be helpful, it's better to be explicit and request it.

Having the DPL and the CTTE involved at the same time is a bit
problematic, as they are defined as two very separate and independent
bodies in the constitution. In the case of issues with CTTE member(s),
I think that a better first step is to approach another CTTE member, or
the CTTE chairman, and then if this fails, to approach the DPL about it.
