[CentOS-promo] [DRAFT] Code of Conduct for CentOS Dojos

Hi all,

As we're ramping up planning for CentOS Dojos in 2014, it would be a
Good Idea to have a code of conduct/Anti-Harassment/Discrimination
Policy in place. I've taken the liberty of drafting a short one based on
the Linux Foundation's [1] policy.

I trust that this is non-controversial, but I'm including the language
below in case we need to make any tweaks. We also need to decide who
will be the point of contact for any concerns (aside from the local
event staff).

(To be clear, nothing I've heard about previous Dojos gives me any cause
to believe that we'll need to deal with infractions, but better to be
clear about our expectations and have the policy in place.)

Thoughts, comments, flames?

CentOS Dojo Code of Conduct

CentOS Dojos are working conferences intended for professional
networking and collaboration in the CentOS community. Attendees are
expected to behave according to professional standards and in accordance
with standard policies on appropriate workplace behavior.

While participating in a Dojo, or related social networking
opportunities, attendees should not engage in discriminatory or
offensive speech or actions regarding gender, sexuality, race, or
religion. Speakers should be especially aware of these concerns.

We does not condone any statements by speakers contrary to these
standards. We reserve the right to deny entrance and/or eject from an
event (without refund) any individual found to be engaging in
discriminatory or offensive speech or actions.

Please bring any concerns to to the immediate attention of the Dojo
event staff, or contact [whom do we wish to list here?]
