This topic was brought up at the A-H BoF in Montreal. Everybody thinks
A-H's name is wrong for many reasons, but no better-suited name has
yet been suggested; in my view, A-H is far from being a team only to
deal with harassment (which would make it mostly, although not purely,
a sexism-prevention-oriented group), but should be able to work in
"hard" social interactions such as what sparked this set of threads.

But my critique to Ian's original point stands: As long as the people
involved in said "hard" social interactions post their messages to
debian-devel or debian-whatever, no conflict-prevention-body will ever
prevent that friction.
