That's unfortunate, if true.  I wasn't there so I can't comment.

It's not about "rules that organisers have to follow".  When an event
organiser writes "this is our policy about XYZ" in the README, that
means that they are /choosing/ to set out these rules and /promising/
to follow them.

In the usual ways that project organisers are held accountable.  
(Or, are not, in some contexts.)
