This. It's not about making a mistake (or even a series of mistakes): that's to be expected by any person doing anything. Making (and learning from) mistakes is part of being human. The relationship here has certainly been damaged, but to move forward, I don't think acknowledging that mistakes were made is sufficient. It's about making things right. It's particularly frustrating that wikis make mistakes very easy to undo and yet somehow that process has completely failed us here. We encourage boldness, as the next steps (a reversion and discussion) are supposed to be easy. I suppose this principle doesn't apply to a wiki coup.
