One thing that i believe that we should establish early on is a code of conduct for the Hyperledger project.

I helped craft the CoC used by one of our sibling projects at the LF - the Cloud Foundry Foundation [1] - we based that on a number of similar documents from a variety of projects. I'm a bit biased, but I'd like to propose we use it as a starting point to crafting our own.

Mike, can we please add 'code of conduct proposal' to next week's agenda, and reference the link below?

Meanwhile, I'd welcome discussion on any proposed improvements.

How about having no code of conduct? See for example https://github.com/domgetter/NCoC/blob/master/CODE_OF_CONDUCT.md

In my opinion, a CoC brings nothing over normal civil behaviour which I feel is an implicit requirement for succesful participation in any project. Trying to codify everything in rules will only lead to people discussing and arguing the rules, look for corner cases and exceptions, etc. Common sense beats a CoC any day [*].
