Hi everyone,

A while ago, SciPy (the library) adopted its Code of Conduct:

We worked hard to make that document friendly, while at the same time
stating clearly the kinds of behavior that would and would not be

I propose that we adopt the SciPy code of conduct for NumPy as well.  It
is a good way to signal to newcomers that this is a community that cares
about how people are treated.  And I think we should do anything in our
power to make NumPy as attractive as possible!

If we adopt this document as policy, we will need to select a Code of
Conduct committee, to whom potential transgressions can be reported.
The individuals doing this for SciPy may very well be happy to do the
same for NumPy, but the community should decide whom will best serve
those roles.

Let me know your thoughts.
