I just posted a short piece on codes of conduct as relate to software outreach -- and I've seen a lot of evidence that they're being adopted at an accelerating pace by different communities. Is there any scholarship or writing about this trend that people could share?


Look to who emphasizes to people who install Codes of Conduct not to forget about the actual enforcement part once something goes wrong. Just the posting alone is no silver bullet. Also Claudina Sarahe of can speak to this.
