    In the interest of fostering an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in our project and our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.
    that's a bit redundant

      Oh COME ON please!!! I don't understand how the author of the "Code of Politics-over-Progress" can get the document everywhere!

      I'm just gonna disregard the document and be excellent to each other.

            Putting woman in quotes is merited how, exactly? How is not calling her by her preferred pronoun being "excellent to everybody" as you said? You can argue about the CoC without bringing her gender or orientation into it.

            EDIT: tildearrow edited their post to remove the language I was commenting on.

              Wonder who the next victim of swj will be?
              Place your bets everyone.

              Anyway, how can anyone approve of Coc since the proponents are the biggest harrasers.

              For example Shage Sharp from Outreachy has searched through years of online posts of a linux maintainer to find some dirt (and from what I heard it even isn t something very controversial).

              How can you defend that, AsuMagic?

                  It’s not that Vulkan as an API-and-tooling-around-it project just adopted a Code of Conduct today… They just added a Code of Conduct file with a reminder that, as it’s a Khronos project, Khronos CoC applies to it.

                  Khronos has had a Code of Conduct at least since 12th August and possibly earlier.

                  The commit referenced in the article changes nothing except making the visibility of the CoC in the context of the Vulkan Docs issue tracker better.

                  EDIT: Although I see the one from 12th August was not a Contributor Covenant one, so they did change the exact wording of the CoC in the meantime(?).

                  EDIT2: OK, I did confuse it a bit. Khronos had a CoC mainly for events (which was also enforceable in online interactions), but now they explicitly adopted Contributor Covenant CoC for code contributions and issue tracking. The latter one is not backed up on the Wayback Machine, so it seems it is new.

                    My favorite part about incels crying about projects adopting CoCs is that if they actually did practice "being excellent to each other", that would entirely fall within most CoCs and they wouldn't need to care.

                    No, they're mad that they actually have to be aware that their words matter. (And their words are a pretty big reason why nobody wants to talk to them)
