The OSM Carto project (which maintains the base OSM tile layer style)
already has a Community Code of Conduct in place. The pull request
that introduced this particular CoC has none of the skepticism, doubts, and
fears that other people on this (OSMF) mailing list have put forward
regarding having a CoC. It seems to me that the maintainers did not think
twice that having a CoC is needed or that it is unnecessary.
The iD project also has a CoC in place. (This only applies to the
development project that maintains the iD codebase and not to iD users.)
There is an ongoing discussion with the aim to introduce some sort of
CoC to the OSM website repository. Note that this discussion is only for
adding a CoC to the development project that maintains the OSM website, and
does not apply to the users of the actual website nor to other OSM-related
