shouldn't give us an excuse as esteemed representatives of this language and community to be lax in our behaviour since how we act as core devs is probably amplified compared to others in the community.
This is the part about all this CoC talk I never understand. Why on earth would someone change their regular behavior when "at a meetup or conference that has not implemented a CoC" ?
This sounds to me like a very "Wild West" kind of interpretation of civil life that doesn't necessarily map to other societies - and even the days of "Wild West" are long over, aren't they ;-)
To me, the main purpose of CoCs is not the text itself. It's getting organizers thinking about how they would react to possible issues upfront.
How about this then: we make it policy that all core-involved "stuff' -- mailing lists, issue tracker, etc. -- are to be explicitly put under the PSF CoC? I think python-dev and bugs.python.org are things we control which do not explicitly follow the PSF CoC (I have an email to python-dev-owner@ to get get python-dev updated but I have not heard back; <nudge> :). We could also, as policy, put all projects under the python organization on GitHub -- existing and future -- under the PSF CoC by adding an appropriate CONTRIBUTING file to the repositories.
