We have discussed the issue and decided that:

1. We would prefer if both parties could behave like grown-ups, amicably 
resolve the matter (or at least find a compromise that both can live 
with), document their resolution on the list, and proceed to let OSM 
flourish. We believe that this is not impossible, indeed it is what most 
others in OSM do all the time.

2. In the absence of such amicable resolution, we will ban any party 
continuing or provoking an edit war. For the avoidance of doubt, any 
edit made by either party to an object previously edited by the other 
party is extremely likely to result in a ban.

3. We will not be drawn into further discussion about this. Edit wars 
are not an acceptable means of settling a dispute *even* if one is right.
