I agree.  I think it’s important to clearly explain the general spirit
(and have a code of conduct for that), and then handle “mistakes” like
these when they happen.  For this specific case, I think it’s OK to
simply explain people when that happens that we’d prefer a
gender-neutral phrase, in line with our goal of being inclusive (I do
that from time to time on IRC and people understand, sometimes they just
didn’t realize.)
