Just to add a little bit to this, it's very much a mischaracterization
of the situation to imply that the code of conduct idea is some sort of
demand coming from the foundation. People have been discussing the value
that a code of conduct will bring to the LLVM community for as long as
I've been a part of it.

I'm personally very happy to see that this is finally making some
progress, by the way. Thank you Chandler and everyone else who has been
working on this.
