I remember it was posted on the mailing list for the same reasons that
you have cited.

hmm, in future if any grievances do need to be sorted out, then I
suggest we should take it to IRC (not the list which is open for all
to stare at) and talk one to one, along with other people. Redressal
avenues should be open to all who are interested. But again, these are
my opinions and it will all depend on case to case basis.

Vidya could you please provide some examples where such grievance
redressal forum has been implemented?

No opinions here, but if by Admin we mean ``System Administrators''
then it should go the person who is competent and has vast experience
in administering. New people who are applying for administrator post
should ideally be able to convince that they can handle the
responsibility well.

that's about it,
