Re: Events Code of Conduct: Ratification by the community

Hey Benjamin,

Not sure the previous board can talk anymore as a single entity since no more meetings happen etc. However, I can express here my own take as a member of the previous board.

I found that given that there was a period of two months for feedback and the small amount of feedback got, the general consensus was that it's fine and that going around and making this more convoluted wasn't very useful or interesting for most of the people. Even more if the current set up was intended also as a good starting point but that something to improve over time.

This is something I experienced with the GitLab initiative itself, and that got much more attention and feedback, and even though that feedback happened, some topics weren't just getting much feedback, they were just okay with it.

What I felt was that although CoC is a sensible and delicate topic and I would have expected it would have got much more attention, at the end it didn't got so much and most people were okay with the current set up and processes and were okay by the board approving/readjusting as we do with many other things. Personally, the amount of feedback got together with what I could gather around in person with different members is I believe a good sign of that.

Hope that clarifies a bit or that it gives a different perspective.

This is more of a question to the previous board.

Note that it may well be that I have simply missed the information in
the minutes. It could also be that the information is currently not
available to me as the minutes containing the ratification vote are
currently still private[1][2].

This question relates to the original Board ticket[2] on the topic and
an earlier meeting discussing the event Code of Conduct and
ratification[3]. This ticket says that the "board needs to consider
letting the community vote eventually". The referenced meeting suggests
an "affirmation vote at GUADEC" was planned.

However, no such vote by the community has happened. Instead, it
appears that the Board ratified the event Code of Conduct and related
documents without further community involvement.

Could the Board please elaborate as to why these considerations were
dismissed again at a later point?
