this incident is a small one that is on a path to easy resolution w/o DWG
having to engage. i'm pretty sure the members of the DWG prefer it that
way. the DWG is a big hammer, this incident does not require a big hammer.
in general we should be very slow to invoke the DWG, and make an effort
as members of the community to work through these things first.
