Code of Conduct and Foundation membership

Hi all,

The Board has recently received some complaints from members of the
community about certain the inappropriate behaviors. In the context of
GNOME Foundation, it's really hard to argue about how we expect our
members to behave if there is no official guidelines that members are
supposed to comply with. The GNOME Code of Conduct[1] has been serving
very well as an informal guideline for the community but we'd like to
make it an official document that new Foundation members are expected
to explicitly agree[2] with before being accepted. This way we'll have a
common ground for dealing with certain conflict situations and avoid
trying to base our discussions on guidelines that certain members
haven't explicitly agreed on.

Before deciding on this, we thought it would be useful to get some
feedback from the community.


on behalf of the GNOME Foundation Board of Directors
