I'm very confident that an open dev mailing list with topic-oriented
policy would just work. I'm so confident because this is how the Gentoo
dev mailing list works and it works well.

To draw a caricature, trolling does not happen because devs ask others
to talk with code.

And I can't believe the Arch Linux community has more flamers than
Gentoo's community. I tend to think it's quiet the opposite as the
Gentoo community is wider.
