i want some assistent to help with dayly server admin duties
most root admins we have help and contribute but are often busy
raz recently set up a full backup system for us, someone seems
helping with security updates as iam not always the first doing them
(i think its lou but didnt check) and all kinds of other things ...

what would be really nice would be someone who has some time and for
whom server admining is a fun thing to do,
someone who would do it "because it needs to be done" would be 2nd
choice IMHO

iam not suggesting anything specific but there is one thing that i
think i have not seen talked about and that is moderation. Mailman
supports moderating individual subscribers.

It might be along the lines of
If one repeatly and conciously violates the CoC and no real solution
can be found, he can be given the choice by the mailman admins to
either promise to attempt not to repeat the violation
or to be moderated until an event occurs that changes the situation
or some timeout.
The insulted person should have the option to veto this at any time so
if one feels that it wasnt enough to justify the inconvenience the
"hurt" party should be able to stop this.
This would have to be combined with something effective for IRC and
possibly git, in case issues shift there too
