+1, I completely agree.

In my earlier experience with this the main reason for this behavior to happen 
is the lack of experience with the tools and the open source environment and 
ways of working. As we are working with people all around the globe we also 
need to take into consideration the different cultures and how they communicate 
and handle situations like this.

We should put emphasis on remaining an open, friendly and diverse community by 
providing education and help to those people who need it the best way we can. 
And this should include not assuming the worse before we actually know why 
things happened and not publicly shaming people, but to provide mentorship.

I think this is extremely important, and I’m happy to be a ‘go to person’ and 
help people understand how these systems work and what is the best way to join 
an open source community like OpenStack in case you need more people to get 
involved in communicating our principles.

Thanks,
