I think feelings about this conflict and split are probalby still too raw to get useful debrief of the conflict. But I do hope we'll eventually be able to put up a brief account of what worked and what didn't when an Indymedia collective was faced with the difficult task of splitting up and co-existing within the same community.
It's only a matter of time before this kind of split happens again, and the group splitting might benefit from lessons learned in this conflict.
Till then, maybe people want to just brainstorm or grocery list
some aspects of the conflict resolution process
