Re: [Hyperledger Project TSC] Survey on Code of Conduct Preferences


Dave Neary <dneary@...>
 

Hi,

For what it's worth, my experience is that having a code of conduct at
all is a significant positive step. Communities can spend a lot of time
debating the relative benefits of approaches, terms, etc. The only vital
thing, in my opinion, is a clear path to remediation when there is a
complaint.

In the end, this will be a no-op for over 90% of the community. The
small (hopefully) number of community members of our community who
encounter poor behaviour will have recourse, and the reassurance that
good behaviour is something that the comunity values. For these people,
the code of conduct materially improves their community experience.

The only people who will be potentially negatively impacted by the code
of conduct will be those who behave poorly. And frankly, I am OK with that.

So I encourage the swift adoption of either, and I don't really mind which.

Thanks,
Dave.

Just a quick update on the Code of Conduct. It appears with 47 voters
participating, we have a near even split between the two options. At
least one participant chose not to vote for one of the other on the 3rd
question, so we’re also in a dead tie at 23 votes each for both options.

I’m not sure this offers a clear path forward, but the good news is that
either option appears to be acceptable by more than 90% of the
community. I’ll leave the voting open, but this is where things stand as
of now.

Just a quick update. We have 25 responses so far. If you’ve not
weighed in, please do so today. As mentioned yesterday on the call,
this is about which CoC to start from and there may be provisions to
add/remove before this goes for approval. Please look at the versions
Arnaud put on Google Docs (not the respective source’s website) as
there already have comments and suggestions for improvement embedded.

I will send out a link to the current results at the end of today.

Members of the Hyperledger technical community, on the TSC call
today, there was a discussion on options for adopting a code of
conduct for the community. There were various aspects of both the W3C
and Cloud Foundry options that seemed appealing. In order for the TSC
to make a more informed decision about the broader community’s
preferences, we’ve put together a VERY simple survey to get your
feedback. It should take you 1-3 minutes at most to weigh in on your
preferences. Please help provide datapoint to help the TSC understand
the preferences of the community.

The survey is here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/7FYFBGB

If you missed the discussion on the TSC call today, the recording
should be up shortly on the GitHub Wiki along with the minutes. If
you have not looked at either, the respective code of conduct
documents the team have been working on can be found at the URLs below.

* Cloud Foundry based: Option 1
