I don't think it makes sense for a document to say directly that it isn't
trying to change anything. Once it exists, there is no change to speak of?

Hrm, I'm not sure how to make it more clear. I think the best way is to get
the wording to align with the general expectations of the community. Do you
have specific things that would help there? Here is my best idea:

It already states "We want to ensure that the LLVM community, while large
and diverse, remains welcoming and respectful to all participants." which
is trying to get at what you are saying Rafael with the "remains". But I
could imagine rewording it to make this more obvious like so:

"The LLVM community has always worked to be a welcoming and respectful
community, and we want to ensure that doesn't change as we grow larger and
more diverse."

Better word smithing of this would be very welcome!
