EMO needs more than just the nuclear option for misbehaving projects
Section three, "Requirements" states that
Projects that fail to perform the required behaviors will be terminated by the EMO.
The nuclear option may be... extreme.
Let's take some inspiration from the grievance handling section and make a range of options, "up to and including" termination, available to the EMO.
The grievance handling section states:
A variety of grievance resolutions are available to the EMO up to, and including, rebooting or restarting a Project with new Committers and leadership.
The grievance handling section requires that a member initiate the process by raising a concern through the project leadership chain, to the EMO and EMO(ED) before EMO can take any action (other than the responsibility to terminate as described in section three).
We should make sure that these two responsibilities are consistent. That is, we should expand the responsibilities of section three to include less extreme options than termination and include termination as an potential resolution in grievance handling.
At least in part, I'm thinking about this primarily from a perspective of vulnerability management. In the case where a project team cannot or will not address a vulnerability issue in a manner that is consistent with established practices, we need to have options to step in on their behalf.
