I don't know if some guidelines will gain the community anything, but
there might be another solution to the current problems in the
community along the following lines:

- decide that later this year (for example next october or september)
there could be a developer
meeting/conference/merge/gittogether/whatever somewhere in North

- ask many developers who contributed to Git significantly, including
those involved in the last flamewars, if they could come and if they
would need financial help to come

- ask some companies to sponsor the meeting by providing money, space,
food, beer, accomodation, whatever they want

- maybe ask Git developers or users living neer the meeting place if
the developers coming could crash at their place

- announce the meeting, thanks the sponsors, by the way thanks a lot
GitHub for the git merge 2013 last May in Berlin

- meet, discuss stuff, have a lot of beers together, write stupid joke
patches together and send them to the list

- reimburse the developers who came for their travel and if needed
accomodation expenses

- thank everyone for coming and having a good time together and thank
the sponsors again, by the way thank you guys who came to the git
merge 2013 and thank you again Github, for organizing it and Uber and
Google for sponsoring it

It might not work but it might be a nice try :-)
