The objective of a code of conduct as I've considered it is to make spaces like the Talk list effective rather than polite. Politeness and culture are both nice, but the Talk list should be a place where work can get done, and part of that work is ensuring that many more participants than the current “direct culture” people can do that.

A good set of baseline expectations for conduct in OSM can help that happen!

The OSM Carto and iD documents seem fine. Paul and Simon’s objections to the specific Contributor Covenant one also seem fine — I don’t have a strong opinion on this, but I defer to Simon’s opinion about adhering to a particular agenda. One thing I’d like to see is some description of who’s expected to do the enforcing. For example, does authority for this code comes from the OSMF Board, and do they appoint a moderator for community spaces?
