I say it is on one hand better to grant the voting community time to
read and research options for CoC, for the community (at least those
with franchise - at the moment only debian developers) to debate that
CoC, such that (entirely inadvertent, of course) mistakes and/or
potential problems in our legislation (in this case Debian Policy) be
On the other hand, such problems, and the consequences (quite possibly
only to be seen some years into the future) might in fact be the ideal
opportunity for members of the debian community (both those with and
without franchise) to experience the consequences of ill thought out,
or not properly explored/understood legislation.
