+1 from me as well. The discussion of a more formal CoC on the
python-committers list also highlighted for me that our main current
problems don't appear to be with any ill-intent on anyone's part, but
rather with well-intentioned messages that nevertheless have the
effect of causing folks to feel unappreciated and resentful. A
practical quick start guide is likely to be more effective in
addressing that aspect than a more explicit CoC (although I still
think the latter would be a good idea in the long run).
