It appears the discussion has gotten to the stage where you're both
talking semantics (all three, with Murray).
Here's the summary, as far as I can tell:
1. We have the by-laws and charter. The by-laws are mostly legalese
template, and the charter has been treated mostly as a historical data
(it talks about the board providing technical direction, for example).
2. Quim is suggesting that reminding people about the core principles of
those two documents is more useful than making a third document official.
3. Jeff and Murray are both proposing that we use the "Code^WGuidelines
of conduct" as a basis to codify existing behavioural expectations of
4. 2 and 3 are the same thing. The GoC will be reminding people about
the core values of our community. Jeff's been asking for a while that we
actually look at the document, and see whether (as it is) it does
represent those core values (which have their basis in our charter).
So can we do that, please?
Might I suggest killing this thread, it's outlived its usefullness. A
new thread, with suggestions for additions or removals from the GoC ,
will perhaps be more productive.
