Renato, I’m confused about your approach here.  At this point, you seem persistently interested in discussing whether having a code of conduct is the right thing or not.  This is missing the point: we’re committed to it, and want to make sure that we get reasonable processes and policies in place.

If we find out that they are problematic in practice, we can and will course correct.
