I am having trouble getting traction in the discussion on the mailing list.
I've escalated the issue to Lucas and Moray and am waiting on them for a
decision on just adopting it.

I *could* unilaterally just declare it in effect for DC14, as it has full
support of the entire DC14 local team, but my goal was to make it a globally
adopted CoC. It builds off DC13's statement, the Debian CoC, and ensures all
attendees of their treatment by organizers, with RichiH's suggestions on
protecting everyone involved included.

Well, "people" are always going to be upset about *something*. 1 oz cups,
for example, the distance from the university, for example - needing to
register is just going to be Another Thing. I'm more concerned about lack of
compliance, then people just showing up.

I would like the wine and cheese party to be open to anyone with a legit
DebConf14 badge on, to be honest.
