Discussion regarding Community Working Group and/or Ombudsman
 
Now that the Fedora Board has formally accepted the documents prepared
by the Community Working Group regarding a code of conduct and the
enforcement of the code of conduct, I'd like to start a discussion
regarding the longer-term role of the Community Working Group. While
the enforcement of the code of conduct (particularly in serious
circumstances) should take place at the Board level, I think there's
general agreement that it might be helpful to have a person or group
dedicated to helping mediate conflicts and referring cases to the
Fedora Board as necessary. That group could be the CWG, an elected
ombudsman, or something else.

What would you like to see?

I think a body of Ombudsees, appointed by the FPL, confirmed by the
Board, serving 1-2 year terms. The reasons being the following:

1) Multiple people are going to be needed because unless RH is paying
for it, these people will be volunteering to deal with grumpy
situations.
2) Elections do not make sense to me in this case. The person is a
facilitator which is a set of skills not everyone has nor one that
people are going to be able to see to elect if X is better than Y.
