I don't think there is any action that can be taken on dev@ beyond pointing
out to others here that, when one does not have access to the privileged
conversations of the PMC, actions that use those conversations as
justification appear hostile, as do dismissive PMC member reactions when
simple and reasonable questions are asked about them.

Hopefully, recognising how much harm the resulting atmosphere of mistrust
does to the project will be remembered. Then PMC members will be heard in
the future when they ask that private@ conversations be reiterated or
summarised and then continued on dev@.  Note that just continuing
converstaion is not enough; all dev@ members need to understand the full
context rather than being belittled for not knowing it.
