It is worth starting with one important point that last week's article failed to mention: the new code of conduct is not actually new to the community as a whole. In particular, the DRM (graphics) subsystem adopted the freedesktop.org code of conduct in April 2017. This code, like the code for the kernel as a whole, is derived from the Contributor Covenant text. There have not been any problems of note arising from the use of this code in that subsystem to date. Your editor has been told that the DRM community's successful use of this code was a direct contributor to Torvalds's choice of this particular code as a starting point for the kernel.

it's interesting how everyone seems to be saying "there has been no problems with the new CoCs so far, so it's really just a feelgood thing, isn't it!"

seems familiar... not only from used car salesmen but also in larger contexts...

it's also not true, as some of the examples in this very thread illustrate.

As harmless as giving Richelieu six innocent lines of text*.



*"Qu'on me donne six lignes écrites de la main du plus honnête homme, j'y trouverai de quoi le faire pendre" - which may or may not have been really said by the cardinal himself.

If people think they can't contribute useful code because no code of chat speech ("conduct") is in place, chances are that those people aren't capable developers and should probably just go away. Does anyone here think that the CoC people will suddenly turn into highly skilled kernel hackers now?

I'm looking forward to their first non-prose contributions to Linux. With a large bag of popcorn.
