> OpenStreetMap is one of the few open source initiatives that operates its
> mailing lists without a formal Code of Conduct. Many [1] of the large open
> source projects have adopted a Code of Conduct for their mailing lists,
> forums and conferences.
>
> Why would we want to have a formal standard for contact? OpenStreetMap
> longevity depends on our being able to attract and keep new mappers,
> developers and third party users. Good behavior means more people feel
> comfortable engaging in community discussions. Bad conduct not only drives
> people away but can lead to giving OSM a bad reputation. Our reputation is
> key to raising funds needed for operation and growth. The OSMF Board has a
> fiduciary responsibility to protect our project. Adopting and enforcing a
> Code of Conduct is a step in that direction.
>
> Some examples of CoC guidelines are:
>
>    -
>
>    Be respectful
>    -
>
>    Be friendly and patient
>    -
>
>    Be civil and considerate
>    - Be collaborative
>    -
>
>    Assume good intentions.
>    -
>
>    Respect time and attention
>    -
>
>    Disclose potential conflicts
>    - Take responsibility for our words and our actions
>    -
>
>    Be welcoming
>    -
>
>    Be careful in the words that you choose
>    -
>
>       Discriminatory remarks based on stereotypes
>       -
>
>       Violent threats or language directed against another person.
>       -
>
>       Discriminatory jokes and language.
>       -
>
>       Posting sexually explicit or violent material.
>       -
>
>       Posting (or threatening to post) other people's personally
>       identifying information ("doxing").
>       -
>
>       Personal insults, especially those using racist or sexist terms.
>       -
>
>       Unwelcome sexual attention.
>       -
>
>       Repeated harassment of others. In general, if someone asks you to
>       stop, then stop.
>       -
>
>       Deliberately spreading FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt)
>       -
>
>       Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.

> Adopting a CoC is just one step in the process. If we only post the CoC
> when members sign up on a mailing list or attend our conferences, nothing
> will change. Instead the Board should:
>
>    -
>
>    Define the scope of the policy: may include mailing lists, conferences
>    and other in person gatherings, forums, comments on changesets, IRC,
>    -
>
>    Decide who is responsible for responding to reports of abuse
>    -
>
>    Determine consequences for violating the CoC
>    -
>
>    Provide appropriate avenues to report abuse
>    -
>
>    Periodically remind members of our CoC
