This forum (both a Usenet newsgroup and a mailing list) is part of the
Python community. So the “Python Community Code of Conduct” applies.

    <URL:http://www.python.org/psf/codeofconduct/>

That was formed by the Python community and adopted by our gracious
hosts, the Python Software Foundation, who provide this forum for our
use.

I welcome use of the above code of conduct to guide social norms in this
community.

Amen.
