The work on the new Code of Conduct has been underway for some time. My
predecessor, Bex, began this work 2 years ago. As you can see, it is
a long process. Although I do agree that there is some connection
between the two documents, the new Code of Conduct does not need to
block a policy for Community Publishing Platforms, as we do not know
when the new CoC will be in place.
Let's proceed with this and if some small changes need to be made later
on, that is something that can be done.
It may just be coincidence, but FSFE decided to make a policy for
communications and things went downhill badly from there.
Fedora is obviously not the same as FSFE: everybody knows Red Hat is
behind Fedora. In FSFE, volunteers were told that FSFE is independent.
Given the history of such actions, even if Red Hat had nothing to do
with that in other organizations, I feel it would be more respectful
towards volunteers to avoid the perception that something is being rushed.
The community could produce alternative ideas that might lead to more
innovation. To suggest one alternative: would volunteers like to have
an elected media team, similar to the election of the Fedora Council?
How many more ideas might come from other volunteers with a consultation
beyond this mailing list?
