This was a hard thing for everyone involved, because the person was an active contributor - but was treating many people in an unacceptable way.  While it was a hard decision, I am *very* glad that this happened, because I highly value the LLVM community and how we all work together as a team.

I stand corrected. This was before my time. :)

Doesn't sound unilateral to me. With or without CoC, trying hard and
involving the affected people (including the offender's point of view)
is the way to go.
