I am sure everyone understands that the Twisted community would love more diversity. While it is hard to achieve, it should be easy to remove one of the obvious blockers -- making underrepresented groups feel more welcome. Thanks for taking this on, Moshe.
My current draft, including instructions on how to build it, is in https://github.com/moshez/twisted-coc . I have intentionally not made the built documents available, in an attempt to avoid someone picking them up before they're approved by us.
Why isn't this repository either (A) just a simple text file saying "we have adopted the Django CoC" or (B) a very small fork of something else? One of the concerns is licensing; if the text comes via Django, Django credits the "Speak Up!" project, which is CC-BY, apparently from this repository: https://github.com/jnoller/talk-mentorship. Another is... is Twisted really distinct enough to need its own CoC? Just s/Django/Twisted might be good enough? (Since this is not a fork, figuring out if anything else has changed is rather tedious, even after having read both ;)).
I wonder whether it might make sense to just say we adopt https://www.python.org/psf/codeofconduct/ ?
What I would really love is if we could have our own diversity statement like Django has: https://www.djangoproject.com/diversity/
The Django one is more explicit -- it's rather sad that it needs to be, but it does lay out more directly the unacceptable behaviours. That being said, it's not an unchangeable document -- if it doesn't suit the community's needs, we can modify it to suit.
