As hopefully everyone is aware, we have a Code of Conduct (CoC) in our repository. I think we should find someone who is interested in taking care of possible requests about it.
I don’t think we have any case where we need to enforce it right now, but I would consider it useful, when there would be a better way to report such topics. The current CoC says:
Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by opening an issue or contacting one or more of the project maintainers.
But we currently have no obvious way to contact maintainers (besides sending an email to email addresses listed in user profiles on GitHub). I think we should explore easier ways to provide such feedback. For example by private messages on this forum or mentioning Matrix as an possible end-to-end encrypted channel.
I also want to highlight one of the reasons why I don’t think I’m the right person to enforce it in first place. There is an line in the CoC that makes the problem obvious:
Project maintainers who do not follow or enforce the Code of Conduct may be permanently removed from the project team.
Which really shows that maintainers shouldn’t be self-controlling but have an external control instance as there is a conflict of interest. Therefore I would love to see someone who is not directly involved as a maintainer, taking this place and be our watch(wo)man.
