Re: Code of Conduct: picking up

Thanks, Steve (and Wouter, of course). A very minor observation
regarding ordering.

I think this last paragraph of the "Assume good faith" section would
belong better in the "Be respectful" section. Keeping in mind not all
of us have even the same mental structure when knitting phrases can,
yes, explain misunderstandings regarding the good faith of our
participations, but is much farther reaching (and should thus be a
more general statement), and the mention of the Diversity Statement
does not really IMO fit into this second section.
