TL;DR: if we write a code of conduct, please let's create a list of
positive behaviors we want to promote.
personally, i don't feel comfortable with a policy like the ones
presented by the python foundation.
while i agree that a software conference like ours should not be
sexualized or racist (among all the potential "exclusive" behaviors that
you can think of), i don't value a list like the one i read at
from the experiences i have had at the LGM, i don't think we need a code
... but if we ever feel the need of such a paper (even just for formal
reason, like being able to apply for specific funds), i would welcome a
nice, friendly and positive code of conduct stressing which behaviors
make a good LGM.
not a list of possible negative things that almost never happened at the
lgm and which are unlikely to happen in madrid (or disturb anybody
 i'm not 100% sure of it, but i think that we already had very few
(or just one?) presentations with slightly sexist content... but if i
recall it correctly, the reaction from the attendance was more towards
making the presenter feeling uncomfortable, while nobody in the room was
really feeling harassed... so: probably a non issue.
