I do not think this is about the CoC. It is about if and how a valid 
request by a community member is handled/answered (or not).

This is a matter of transparency and openness on the one side, and 
assumed things like respect, manners, decency, or just civil good 
behavior of holding to a given word/promise.

Marc can for sure just say, I/we do not want to publish the record. If 
there are no valid understandable reasons given for not publishing them, 
even if promised otherwise, OSGeo can say, ok thanks for letting us 
know, and draw their due consequence from this.

Improving the CoC is good, but for this case it does not really matter, 
I think. Everybody can see, that there were unnecessary offense given 
and taken... how could the best CoC in the world help prevent this
