310 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id3" id="abstract" name="abstract">Abstract</a></h1>
311 <p>This GLEP proposes that we extend the current proposed management
312 structure by adding a position of Ombudsman that would fall under
313 devrel, qa, and pr. An ombudsman is one who has been assigned to
314 <em>impartially</em> investigate complaints and settle disputes.</p>
315 </div>
316 <div class="section">
317 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id4" id="motivation" name="motivation">Motivation</a></h1>
318 <p>Given the impressive numbers of both Gentoo developers and users, it is
319 inevitable that there will be occasional clashes between developers and
320 managers, developers and developers, and developers and users. Right
321 now there is no mechanism to prevent such disputes from escalating out
322 of control.</p>
323 </div>
324 <div class="section">
325 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id5" id="specification" name="specification">Specification</a></h1>
326 <p>One developer (and one backup) will be appointed as ombudsmen. This
327 positions should be far from a full-time job. It would appear as part
328 of the devrel, qa, and pr projects (inasmuch as qa and pr both involve
329 developer-user relations). Infrastructure requirements are an
330 ombudsman.gentoo.org web page and a <a class="reference" href="mailto:ombudsman&#64;gentoo.org">ombudsman&#64;gentoo.org</a> e-mail

333 <div class="section">
334 <h1><a class="toc-backref" href="#id6" id="rationale" name="rationale">Rationale</a></h1>
335 <p>One traditional method (circa early 1800s in Sweden, apparently <a class="footnote-reference" href="#rit" id="id1" name="id1">[1]</a>)
336 for managing disputes is to have an impartial individual whose job it
337 is to investigate complaints and mediate settlements. A quick search
338 on Google <a class="footnote-reference" href="#google" id="id2" name="id2">[2]</a> reveals numerous government agencies, universities,
339 and industries that employ official ombudsmen. The key requirement for
340 an ombudsman to be effective is support from management and trust from
341 users and developers -- the ombudsmen must be considered by all to be
342 reasonably impartial.</p>
