So as mentioned already in the thread, the main issue is having a
police/justice entity. I would say it needs to be separate from the
development team (to maintain a power separation). Since such profile
doesn't seem to be exactly common in the open source world, maybe we could
externalize it. Does such a service exist with reasonable prices? Could we
use our funds for this? I understand this may sound far-fetched, but who

If such solution is not viable, we could fallback on the voting committee
to elect/design a subgroup of itself (an odd number like 3 persons maybe?)
to hold this moderation task for a period of 3 or 6 months, maybe 1 year.
Then these members are automatically maintainer of the CoC for this period
of time, and decide what to do with it.

Just random thoughts, no hard opinion on it to be honest.
