Thank you!! Issues between adults are resolved by communication, not some totalitarian, controlling enforcement policy dictated by a political agenda.

I would like to re-emphasize that there is no evidence that CoCs bring harmony, inclusivity or any of the other things their proponents claim. On the contrary, there are many incidents of discord, hate and exclusivity in software communities where CoCs -such as the proposed one- have been introduced.

I personally think that proposing a CoC for a community that you have led flawlessly and by example for over 20 years is insulting. It's what some others on this thread would undoubtedly find 'offensive' if it was happening to them.  But, since you have decided to use a CoC, I would urge you to adopt a Code of Merit:

		
[Code Of Merit](https://github.com/rosarior/Code-of-Merit/blob/master/CODE_OF_MERIT.md)

To sum it up, it basically says "We don't care what race, colour, religion, gender you are, you are welcome to contribute to the project. You will only be judged on your technical merit and nothing else."
If we must have a CoC, I can't think of a more egalitarian, fair and -dare I say- socially just one. I think it embodies the Ruby community spirit over the last 20 years quite nicely. I hope you consider it.

Misc #12004: Code of Conduct

I am the creator of the Contributor Covenant, a code of conduct for Open Source projects. At last count there are over 13,000 projects on Github that have adopted it. This past year saw adoption of Contributor Covenant by a lot of very large, very visible projects, including Rails, Github's Atom text editor, Angular JS, bundler, curl, diaspora, discourse, Eclipse, rspec, shoes, and rvm. The bundler team made code of conduct integration an option in the gem creation workflow, putting it on par with license selection. Many open source language communities have already adopted the code of conduct, including Elixir, Mono, the .NET foundation, F#, and Apple's Swift. RubyTogether also adopted a policy to only fund Ruby projects that had a solid code of conduct in place.

Right now in the PHP community there is a healthy debate about adopting the Contributor Covenant. Since it came from and has been so widely adopted by the Ruby community at large, I think it's time that we consider adopting it for the core Ruby language as well.

Our community prides itself on niceness. What a code of conduct does is define what we mean by nice. It states clearly that we value openness, courtesy, and compassion. That we care about and want contributions from people who may be different from us. That we pledge to respect all contributors regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, or other factors. And it makes it clear that we are prepared to follow through on these values with action when and if an incident arises.

I'm asking that we join with the larger Ruby community in supporting the adoption of the Contributor Covenant for the Ruby language. I think that this will be an important step forward and will ensure the continued welcoming and supportive environment around Ruby. You can read the full text of the Contributor Covenant at http://contributor-covenant.org/version/1/3/0/ and learn more at http://contributor-covenant.org/. 

Thanks for your consideration and I look forward to hearing your thoughts.
