Mail from TC39 leadership

Hi Ken,

I'm writing on behalf of TC39 leadership. Leadership have reviewed your recent issues and comments on the "How We Work" and "proposal-pipeline-operator" repositories.

These threads have highlighted a few issues for us to address with you: We find that you did not make use of the official paths that were shared with you to report the conflict you had with Tab. Instead, you posted an inflammatory issue on the How We Work repo and used other repositories to raise visibility for the situation you were helping to escalate, rather than resolve productively. We find that you did not adhere to clear requests by the maintainers to scope your comments and feedback to the matters at hand. As a community member, you are welcome to share your own opinions and thoughts, and to do so in TC39 spaces; however your rights to these spaces are limited as a non-delegate and are always subject to our policies (such as the CoC Policy). Further, even in a general open source project, you do not have a right to the repo maintainer's attention, and they are under no obligation to address or permit your issues. This is not good faith behaviour and is a clear violation of our Code of Conduct. We have temporarily banned you from participating in the TC39 organization on GitHub for a period of 2 weeks. This reflects the final decision of the TC39 leadership team.

I hope you'll take the opportunity to reflect on this situation and grow your reputation positively in the web standards development community. CoC team members can be a resource to you as well, if you would like to discuss ways in which you can engage more productively with this work. In the meantime, let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards, Jory Burson on behalf of TC39 Chairs & CoC Committee
