I think we are mashing together a bunch of issues. So, in effect, are
we looking for:

[0] a way to measure what could be appropriate content for Planet GNOME
[1] a way to prevent non-free or equivalent software being "marketed"
via the Planet
[2] a way to handle the consequences if there is either inappropriate content
[3] a way to handle the consequences if there is a pitch for software
that is orthogonal to GNOME values

I can certainly agree to the need to have a Code of Conduct,
communities have one, either implicit or, explicit. But, unless there
is a clearly delineated process to handle the exceptions, a Code of
Conduct is just a document.
