I can see how one would interpret Chris' statement:

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

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

as "some sort of demand coming from the foundation". In context, my reading
of "we're committed to it" is precisely "demand coming from the foundation".

Maybe a clarification is needed?
