So, does common sense make things less exciting?

I agree that a CoC is not necessarily something that will *actively* help
with outreach to the groups that Murray suggested, but it is an extremely
useful statement nonetheless.

I guess I'll just fall back on the evidence as I've seen it - the Ubuntu
Code of Conduct has communicated a very strong statement of intent, and
ensured (not "made" but "ensured") that the Ubuntu community is a great
place to be.

But cf. my email about why GNOME people stick around - I totally object to
the suggestions that a Code of Conduct is only needed in desperate times.
That's poppycock.
