For clarification:

OSM-Carto is an independent development project under the personal 
github account of Andy Allan and not in any way under control or 
responsibility of the OSMF.  There is no requirement to accept or 
acknowledge the Code of Conduct - not even for maintainers (you have to 
sign up on github to interact with the project and when doing that 
agree to their TOS of course).  There has been (to my knowledge) no 
case of complaint about anyone w.r.t. the Code of Conduct and there is 
no procedure for handling such complaints.

If you try to ask a random contributor on OSM-Carto if they have read 
the CoC i don't like your chances...
