Have you considered the backlash to GNOME that it may cause?

I just learned about it.

You should probably read the whole thread.

And, yes: diversity is still an issue that we need to tackle [insert
subtle reminder here about the code of conduct rework that the board
is still working on and that I hope I'll see in my lifetime].

I did read it, and I found it unfortunate. The reason to remove
GamerGate was because of spam(!).

And the wording did not help that much either:

"The worst thing is that there seems to be systematic harassment of
people (especially women) by this campaign. If so this is terrible and
something that we absolutely condone."

They absolute "condone" harassment? I think the right word was
"condemn". But not clarification either.

On the other hand: we're self-hosting our own GitLab instance, so we
get to be as inclusive as we can, without necessarily depending on
some other project to make the rules.

It may backlash GNOME either way, unfortunately.
